Towrds the window. it catches the light better.
If boarded then run at 90 degrees to boards, hard floor then does not matter as much , slightly easier to run into a doorway than across a doorway to fit under the frame.Across the window will highlight undulation more than inline.
So, no firm rule.
I start at the corner furthest from the door if conditions allow.
