It's due to the fact that the dim light coming in from outside is being "drowned out" by the much brighter light bouncing around inside the room, some of which is reflected from the window pane back to your eyes.
Because the glass reflects images of things in the room. If the light be switched off, reflection ceases, and one can see outside objects much more clearly.
