Looking for a window into the mind of old time carpenters. Or a door.

So, I have a pane of glass in a wooden frame. If I call this wooden frame a door, the pane of glass is held in place with some pieces of wooden trim tacked down with some finishing nails. But, if I call this wooden frame a window, the pane of glass is held in place with glaziers points and putty. Why is this?

Door-window coverings in a rental?

The house I'm renting has uncovered windows in the front and back, which aren't ideal privacy-wise. I'm looking for advice on how to tastefully, non-permanently (no screws) add some more privacy without just taping butcher paper over the windows. Is something like this possible without being tacky?
