Thanks everyone so much for the thoughtful and helpful replies.

Yes, these are all wood framed windows. I would love to sand the frames, clean out old caulk and gunk and do the resealing from the outside.

All wood seems good with no rot found.

Here are some photos as requested.Click image for larger version

Mr. frg. Ahhh....A picture is worth 1000 words. In your case, you may be able to get away with exactly what you describe (scrape, clean up and re-caulk). Ultimately not the best fix, the best fix being total disassembly and re-build or full replacement, but should be easily doable and much less labor/skill intensive and cheaper. That being said, a "quick and dirty" will not last as long as the best fix.
