There is no doubt here.

A narrow window of opportunity means that there is a limit on the opportunity, usually a limited time: a start time & an end time.
There was a narrow window of opportunity to exploit the rising share price.
It says something about the timing, but does not, in general, say that it is difficult, only limited in time.

RE:The window is narrow

My understanding is that it discribes that something is very difficult to handle or
situation is hard and not helpful.:)

Ok, once & for all.

Native English speaker says: (again)

A narrow window of opportunity means that there is a limit on the opportunity, usually a limited time: a start time & an end time.
There was a narrow window of opportunity to exploit the rising share price.
It says something about the timing, but does not, in general, say that it is difficult, only limited in time.

By itself it does not mean difficult..
By itself it does not mean "no chance".

Sorry if I did not make this clear, last time.
