I agree that a polygonal selection tool could be useful. As a more time-consuming workaround, you can choose a small brush, enable Auto Mask, and brush the areas near the edge of the window.  Then, if Auto Mask isn't doing a good job on the window overall, turn off Auto Mask and use a larger brush for the interior areas of the window.   This usually produces good results for me, though it does take more time than a polygonal selection tool.
