Room with a long window

I'm looking to acoustically treat my 12 ft x 9 ft room. One 12 foot wall has a 6 foot wide window centered centered horizontally and vertically. The other 12 foot wall has two doors in it near the corners of the room. One of these doors is literally right in the corner, the other is about a foot and a half from the corner.

Given the sizeable window, and the fact that the center of the wall opposite that window has no obstructions, maybe it would be best to put the desk along a long wall? What would you do?

Testing is really going to be the only way when you have such a long window with something like REW -

No, just put absorbers on stands at the reflection points in front of the window, and then treat the rest as usual:
