The entire square footage of all glass portions of a storefront is referred to as the "Area of Window." The Area of Window should be calculated by multiplying the overall width of the window by the height. For example, if the window is 30 feet wide and 40 feet tall, its Area of Window is 1,200 square feet.
An alternative method for calculating the Area of Window is to add up the areas of all the individual squares made by projecting each corner of the window onto the floor. For example, if the window is 20 feet wide and 30 feet tall, its Area of Window is 420 square feet using this method. The two methods are equivalent but the first method is easier to calculate with tools such as a calculator or spreadsheet program.
As you can see, the Area of Window is larger than the actual size of the window because it includes parts of the wall that aren't visible from outside the building. A store owner who wants to show off their merchandise may also want to include a display area in their calculation. If so, they should divide the total Area of Window by 2 to get the actual usable window space.
In general, the Area of Window should be divided by 2 to find the usable window space.
According to the EPA, the average number of windows per house is 15% of the floor area (see Table 3: Calculation of the Average Number of Windows per House). To calculate the total number of windows for each house, divide the total window area by the area of a single window (15 sq. ft. or 3 ft. by 5 ft.). Then multiply that number by the average number of windows per house.
The average window size is 30 sq. Ft. Multiply the total number of windows by 30 to get an estimate of the total square footage of windows in houses.
It should be noted that this calculation assumes that all the windows are equal size. In reality, some windows will be larger than others and therefore consume more energy than others. However, this calculation provides a good starting point for calculating how much energy your house uses.

A window is made up of a frame and a body that allows the user to view and interact with content in an app. A window might appear alongside other windows on the screen or it can take up the full screen (see Full-Screen Mode). If the window allows resizing, users can also click and drag the window's edges to resize it.
Windows are one of the most common elements in desktop apps, so it's not surprising that many mobile apps include a window feature as well. In general, mobile apps have more limited functionality than their desktop counterparts, so including a window feature that allows the user to navigate between screens may be all that's needed. However, if you want your app to have something special when users tap or swipe across a window, then you should consider developing custom UI for that action instead.
A window is a distinct viewing area on a computer display screen in a system that supports numerous viewing areas as part of a graphical user interface (GUI). A window manager manages windows as part of a windowing system. The user may generally resize a window. Windows may also have title bars, buttons, or other decorations added by an application program. Windows can overlap if they are not resized properly or moved around the screen.
Windows come in many different shapes and sizes. Some applications allow you to resize their windows; others do not. Some require you to move the window around the screen to get more space for reading information, while others keep track of this automatically. There are two types of windows: dialog boxes and panes.
Dialog boxes are small windows that often appear when you enter data into an interactive form. The data you enter goes into the dialog box, and when you are finished it disappears so you can move on to another window or document. Dialog boxes can't be moved or resized once they have been opened.
Panes are split screens that can be opened within any window. You can divide any window into as many panes as you like. For example, one pane might show a web page, while another shows your email program. You can switch between panes using tabs or buttons, just like pages in a magazine. Panes can be moved or resized as needed.
