Removing window frosting


I'm new to the forum but will probably be here often since I have much to do and not a lot of knowledge to do it with (yet).

I have old windows in my new place that have a kind of frosting or glazing on them that make them opaque. I'd like to know if I can take it off (though my intuition says no), or if it's a part of the glass and requires replacing the glass itself.

I'm also guessing that there's a way to check (scratching with a razor blade?) so was interested to see what people have to say about that.

This may be too little description and if so I'll attach some photos of the glass later.

Thanks very much
