Question Tiling of shower wall outside corners

My next project is to install a new shower which include ceramic tile on the walls. Included on that wall is a vinyl window. As shown in the attached picture, the left side is the shower wall (A) to be tiled in 1/4" thick subway tile, the middle portion of the picture (in blue) is the window inset (B) and the right portion of the attached is the window frame (C).
I have selected my ceramic tile for 'A' & 'B'. I would like to protect that outside corner between 'A' and 'B' without using bull-nose tile as a solution.
There are lots of different edging materials to review.
Any suggestions on what type and model of edging that I can use?

My first thought was, wait for it, bullnose!

It's clean, simple and eliminates another piece, why no bullnose?

Can't make the photo out very well, I bet you need to back up about 5 feet and try again.

Just go to Home depot or Lowe's and look at Schluter Rondec bullnose corners. They have corner keys if you need them. Can't tell you what model as we don't know what color your tile is. If it's white, get white ones.

Here is a example. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Schluter...80AT/202608999

Question Part 2 of 2: Tiling of shower wall - outside corner

I was unable to determine how to attached an update visual pertaining to my question from yesterday, so here is a new thread.
The original thread that I posted yesterday is as follows with an updated picture attached.

"My next project is to install a new shower which include ceramic tile on the walls. Included on that wall is a vinyl window. As shown in the attached picture, the left side is the shower wall (A) to be tiled in 1/4" thick subway tile, the middle portion of the picture (in blue) is the window inset (B) and the right portion of the attached is the window frame (C).
I have selected my ceramic tile for 'A' & 'B'. I would like to protect that outside corner between 'A' and 'B' without using bull-nose tile as a solution. There are lots of different edging materials to review.

I trust that that attached picture will more clearly illustrate my question.
Thanks,

The adobe attachment I referred to a few minutes ago has the wrong timestamp. The attachement is in my 10:40am pacific time post as an adobe attachment.

Same answer as before. But rather than trying to tile 2 small outside corners, I think you should eliminate one of them by building out one of the corners (use layers of cement board) so that you just have 1 outside corner.

Go into your profile settings and change your time zone if it's not right.
