In Emacs terminology, a "window" is a container in which a buffer is displayed.

When starting an Emacs frame, there is ordinarily only one window in it, which can be split into multiple windows using [C-x 2] or [C-x 3]. This allows viewing different buffers (or multiple times the same buffer) at once.
