Mission Control wanted the shutters opened while the spacewalkers were still outside so the two men could intercede if something jammed. Barring a problem, Behnken and Patrick were under orders to stay a safe 10 feet or more from the windows after the shutters were raised. The last thing NASA wanted was to have one of them inadvertently kick a window or bang it with a toolbag.

Is it me or has it never been a danger? Have the NASA been cautious for a reason other than safety?

The best window on the world? Oh come on.
