Marion. It is glazing falling out of your windows - not caulking.

Glazing helps hold the glass into the frame - ane seals the glass and wood from the elements.

You need to remove the old glaze and then put in some new.

Heat the old stuff with a heat gun - be careful - you will break the glass if you get it too hot. - you just want to get the glaze soft.

You can remove the glaze - and install new with a glazing knife.

Home Depot has glaze, knives, etc.

Please don't put caulking in there - that is not what caulking is for - it will make a mess.
