I put window washer fluid into the antifreeze container by mistake. Will this hurt my engine?

Not really but you should remove the tank and dump it out anyway. It usually has soap in it which will cause suds in the cooling system.

It's not going to evaporate under pressure. It's not that hard to remove the tank and dump it if you haven't run it too much yet.
