Description of Picture Windows
A picture window is a non-operational, fixed sash window, which means it doesn’t open and close.
They are called picture windows because the window frame essentially frames your view, like a traditional picture frame would frame a photograph. In other words, your view is your “picture”—your piece of art! This is different than other styles of windows, such as single hung windows or single sliders. These types of windows have divided panels of glass, which means you have a frame that goes through the middle of your window area.
You can even get picture windows in shapes other than squares and rectangles, such as octagons or half circles. These windows are also called geometric windows.
Picture windows can be used in any room in your home. They are especially great in spaces in which you want to have a clear view of the outdoors and want to let in a good amount of natural light. This is because, unlike other styles of replacement windows, picture windows have no divided panels to block your view. They also don’t have a screen behind the glass to obscure your view.
The only place you couldn't use a picture window would be in a bedroom in which there is no other window that meets the requirements of an egress window. You also may not want to use a picture window in a room that tends to get stuffy.

Operation of Picture Windows
Because picture windows have a fixed sash, there is no operation to them.
