Yes, I've used this for several years on the interior of several large windows. It works well assuming that you don't have big gaps to the outside that you are trying to cover. Caulk those gaps first. The trick is to install it with good tape. I only use 3M's double-stick product made for the application. It's pricey, but works. The surface it sticks to must be clean and intact. The tape will pull off a poorly painted surface. My best success has been on our varnished wood windows.
