Synonyms of "Window" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Would you mind if I open the window? and Would you mind if I opened the window? ?
A: the first example is more current because you want to open the window so it would just be open and you haven’t opened the window so open would not be pass tense. Although even native Americans say it the other way as well because everything we say is not always in the right tense or grammatically correct.
Q: What is the difference between He slept with the window open. So he caught a cold. and He slept with the window opened. So he caught a cold. ?

Q: What is the difference between to stay at the window and to stay by the window ?
A: “To stay by the window” is more natural when speaking. “To stay at the window” can be used for things like a drive-thru (like for McDonalds), when they say, “Please stay at the window.”
In short, “by the window” is used more
Q: What is the difference between we look through the window and we looking through the window ?
A: "We looking through a window" is not considered to be proper English. If you say "We ARE looking through a window," then both of those sentences would basically mean the same thing.
Q: What is the difference between from the window and through the window and out of the window ?
A:

When seeing someone from inside a bus, I think out of the window and through the window would sound a lot more natural, but all three could be used.

Out of the window is usually shortened in daily conversation to 'out the window', it's less formal and not really correct, but means the same thing.

I, personally, would be more likely to say "I saw you out the window".
