You know the deal. Post a picture.
Corner bead for what?
Almost never a great idea to use sheetrock returns.
Far better to build real wood jambs, they hold up far better in a most area, in fact I try to use all vinyl trim in a bathroom.
Sure hope that windows not in the shower area!

Not in shower, Sheetrock is what it was trimmed in originally. Can't post a pic right now.

If that the way your going to trim it then yes you need outside corner bead.
A far nicer look is rounded corners. It softens the whole look.
