Oddly enough, I'm kinda curious to know if it's possible as well. I also mess about with my windows. My OCD kicks in and i have to have my windows lined up =P . Silly, i know. Its sometimes a pain to get the driver's side just right.

Ditto! See above. That's it. But to fully disengaged, just unhook the battery.

Again just push down or lift up half way and it'll stop when you release it.

Thanks fanatics!
are you high? Why in the world would you want to disable it?

I don't mind one touch on the drivers window, maybe, sometimes, but the other windows? Nope.
i agree w/ u on this... especially evident when you just wanna 'crack' the window open when parked in the hot sun... damned difficult to get it just right w/ one touch...If you figure it out pls post it here for all of us.. thnx

I'm starting to wonder if there are different sensitivity levels for each and every one touch button sets installed for these cars?
Sounds like some are experiencing different results than others with use of their one touch, including me.
If I press to open, then a quick pull-up on the button, the window reverses and returns to full closed. Setting to an exact open point is impossible.
Like with the old days and the lady elevator operator, trying to level the elevator floor even with the platform, failed attempt after attempt.
Yes, just try to crack the window 1/2 inch open to vent the parked car. Impossible with one touch. One could never be fast enough to hit the button just right to do that.
A least not the with my one touch button.

Well, I see I'm not the only one less than thrilled with one touch.
And consider the invite to car jacking as well. How would one crack the window 1 inch to talk to a stranger insisting on getting your attention, without the window opening at least fully half way down.
By then, while you sitting there playing with the button and the window, you'd look up to discover a gun in your face. And your window fully open.

I'm assuming that is why ford deleted the visor garage door controls from the 2013 models. If you car were stolen, not only would your car be gone but the thief would have full access to your garage/home. I'm betting that ford removed the garage door visor feature for security reasons and thus avoiding possible lawsuits from which.

But anyway, I will take time to call my ford guy on the one touch issue.
And post back for those truly interested with what they suggest.

The home link visor would have been removed due to cost, not due to the one touch windows.
