The AC will condense the humidity out of the air which is why it comes on.

That's right spot-on. Otherwise it will just blow moist air on inside of glass, making it worse. Give Full_of_Regrets a "Best Answer" click, that is a compliment and the only reward we get, it's not like we get paid for this
