Synonyms of "Window" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre Would you mind if I open the window? e 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: Qual é a diferença entre He slept with the window open. So he caught a cold. e He slept with the window opened. So he caught a cold. ?

In short, “by the window” is used more
Q: Qual é a diferença entre we look through the window e 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: Qual é a diferença entre from the window e through the window e 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".
