Cool cutting a hole in window

Can anyone give me tips on how to cut a hole in an existing window? I have a very large window that I do not want to replace, but I want to put a window air conditioner in.
I live in Phoenix, AZ so I am not concerned about the cold air getting in.

Thanks for any advise!

I assume you mean cutting a hole in the glass of a fixed window. If that's so, you can't do it and it's tricky for a professional.

You would need to reframe the window opeining and install a glass cut to size.....this way the glass can be cut across and the framing supports the AC. You might also consider a cut out in the wall and siding for an inwall AC.
