Default Disable Power Windows?

I'm getting my windows tinted tomorrow and I'm a little paranoid that I might accidentally hit one of the power window buttons and screw up the tinting before the film dries. Is there a simple way to disable all of the power window controls without killing anything else? I was hoping there was a fuse for this, but I can't find one on the fuse box labels.

There's a button to lock all other windows but your own. Its right above the front passenger window control on the power cluster. This will keep your passengers from opening your windows. Just put masking tape over the window switches, thats what the people did to my car after i got it tinted. No worries.

You could just undo the one screw holding the main switch in place. Lift it up and unplug the connector. The screw is under a little black tab in small compartment immediately to the rear of the switch

Ahhh cool. That's what I was looking for. I'm not spastic so the tape would probably be more practical, but this is a much more eligant solution

Sure just make sure it disables all the windows. I believe that it does.

You don't think putting tape over it would help? That's what I did for a week before I felt comfortable enough to lower my windows.

LOL you guys are funny. You only have to do this for about 3-5 days tops. Have self control and just be conscious of it. No need to go to all this trouble.

Well it is always hard to judge someone's situation. Maybe he has multiple drivers in his car. Perhaps, he is like me, forgetful. I just installed a power window module which rolls the windows up automatically when I alarm the car. Why? Because I have a habit of alarming the car with the windows down.
