If you are refering to rocket launches to other planets, it is the time when the other planet is in position so you can reach it. Usually that is the time when the planet is closest to earth or something like that. There might be a two week launch window for Mars, then you might have to wait another year for the same mission. Basically, it is the time frame when all the conditions for a successful mission are in place.

The page that appears in your browser window as soon as you launch the program is called the homepage.

Yes. Add -window after the ending quote in the shortcut you use to launch WC3.

No, it is not. Window is usually a noun (wall opening, or metaphorically a limit to a view or opportunity, e.g. launch window). Rarely it is a verb and means to furnish with windows.
