    U can use molley plugs, no need for a stud

    Recommend using the plastic wall anchors. They now make one that you can simply screw into the wall without having to drill a hole and tap in, which are also flimsy at best.

    i would say that the edges of the windows would have studs.

    drill a hole with a narrow bit. If you find a stud, great. Carry on with installing the bracket with screws. If you don't hit a stud, drill a slightly larger hole and use a plastic wall anchor. Then screw into that.

    Is your wall sheetrock? Wall anchors would be your best bet if you don't happen to hit the stud.

    Longer screws, believe me there’s 4+ inches of wood around every window and at every corner

    If you can't locate any studs, drywall anchors work in a pinch and give the extra little bit of support your curtain rods need. To install these, drill a pilot hole first, and then hammer the anchor into the hole before screwing directly into them.

    Go to a big box home improvement store or a hardware store. They'll guide you to products that will anchor into the sheetrock firmly to hang items. Ask for wall anchors, toggle bolts.
