Unhappy Windows won't roll up or down at all!

Driving home last night my dash illumination went out. Apparently some of my "add-on" gauge lights shorted- the illum. fuse was blown. Replaced the fuse and twas fine. But today I discovered only the drivers window works, the other 3 are totally dead.

I tried all the switches, I checked all the fuses, the problem is, THERE ISN'T ONE. I couldn't find a fuse that has anything to do with the power windows (this is a WRX, if it matters). Anyone have any idea on this?

Look in the main fuse box in the engine bay for Slow Blow Fuse (SBF) #6 (30A).

Doh! Thanks for the help guys. Kastle, you were exactly right. I never used that button or knew what it was for or - must have pressed it on accident. Too obvious for me.

You are not a complete idiot anyway The owners manual does NOT specify which fuse runs the windows. (How did you find it Jon?)
I was looking for that fuse last nite after my driver's window went down and stayed down, that's the last I saw of it, it must be down there somewhere
If it is just a blown fuse I will look like an idiot...
Of course I AM in Seattle and the winter monsoons have just begun!
