Pruning an acer in March

Should I do this?
a few branches are coming toward a window and I’d definitely rather they didn’t! If I can’t do a full prune but need to snip some back, what’s the best way to do this at this time of year?
thank you!

    Autumn/winter is the time to do it when they're dormant.

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
