You know, you have this peculiar way of asking seemingly simple
questions that are very hard to answer? :-)

Maybe the book  can help you. It's chapter 2 contains infromation
on how to get spectral components from samples. And one point is
how windowing influences the result. Sorry, I cannot help you more
than that, I barely understand the topic myself.

Any simple idea will be worded in the most complicated way.
