We are in the process of planning the remodeling of our 9 1/2 x 5 bathroom and are considering the expansion of our ceiling to accommodate the installation of a skylight.   With the expansion, we will lose our vent.  However, there is a window in the shower area.  Should I have the vent moved or is it okay to REmove?  How necessary is it to have the vent if there is a window available for circulation?  Hopefully the expanded ceiling will allow the steam to dissipate easier. Thoughts/Suggestions? Thanks.

You should just move the vent. If you take it out, then if you put up wall paper the steam will began to make the paper come loose. All some the vent helps remove moisture from the air, which can lead to milldew forming on the ceiling.

The expanded ceiling will not allow the steam to dissipate, it will only disperse it more but the steam will remain. The window opening is in the hands of the wind direction and bad weather. As Shane stated, the fan should be relocated.
