    It depends on what you want to say.

    1.After she came, I opened the window.
    Я открыл окно после того, как она пришла.=После того, как она пришла, я открыл окно.(If you want to emphasise the time of the action.)
    When did you open the window?-After she came.
    2.I opened the window, then she came.(If you are just telling about two consecutive actions.)
    Я открыл окно, потом(затем) пришла она."После" is possible in the second sentence, but I 'd better use "потом".

    Nope, the first answer is correct.

    The second option is the right one, if you're after the word "window" put a comma.

    The first one. The second one technically could work the way Ivan suggested, but it wouldn't sound very natural anyway.

    2- я открыл окно после она пришла. <-- wrong
