Hard token. In most cases the aisle seats only get assigned when all windows have been filled. See if there is some button or link to ´change seats´.

But half of trip is in tunnel and other half only shows flat sugarbeet/wheat fields. PLUS that to the enormous annoyance of many a picky selector, a seat at the side of where windows are will not necessarily mean that you can look out there-a fair lot are right beside the stills=no view.

Hi! You should be able to log in to your booking on the eurostar.com site to change your seat, using the booking reference that appears on your reservation. You'll have to download the tickets again from there as well (or open them in the Eurostar app), as elsewhere your seats don't get updated.

Nonsense. It's pretty likely there still is a window seat: some people actually prefer aisle seats, many people want to sit together and don't care and there are about 50% of window seats (slightly less in Standard, somewhat more in Standard Premier). 

But half of trip is in tunnel and other half only shows flat sugarbeet/wheat fields. PLUS that to the enormous annoyance of many a picky selector, a seat at the side of where windows are will not necessarily mean that you can look out there-a fair lot are right beside the stills=no view.

The journey in the tunnel takes 20 minutes. In total  the trip takes between 1h30 and 4 hours (depending on where you're heading). Max. you're in the tunnel for about ⅕th of the journey (Lille-London), and for Amsterdam-London it's about 10%.

On the Eurostar seat selection map you can see which seats have windows and which ones don't, see below. The grey bit = wall. White = window.
