I doubt the patents would cover the "window into a larger desktop"; I think that idea is rather older than the patent.
I *think* [very light analysis] the patent is largely about the idea of being able to have the same objects in multiple windows, possibly in different places. Note that it's "the same display object", not multiple display objects that present the same underlying data - it's about linking into the same underlying graphical object, which can render itself in which ever window is visible.
