Using Smart key to open all windows & moon roof

Asked one Toyota service department about this and they have no idea what I'm talking about.
I guess Quickdtoo would have a handle on this one so here goes.
Do I have to go to the dealer to program the smart key (car) or is there a downloadable program that permits final users to get into the brains of the car to program it?
It's usually hot where I live and I'd love to lower my windows w/out having to get aboard the car with all that heat.
If the car is a Limited edition, how would I know if it also has the Remote start available?
I have checked these issues with the dealer, but as they say, it's all new to us and we have no idea yet. I read it has to be programmed. Can't I do it?

Happily retired and doing nothing about it

Show them the owner's manual, page 159 of the .pdf version, it's also listed in the customization section page 686, this must be done with Techstream, possibly with Carista is Carista ever updates their programming. Mine was set as on instead of the default off during PDI cuz the tech hadn't done a '19 before.

Quote:
The power windows can be
opened using the wireless remote
control.* (P.109)
●Vehicles with alarm: The alarm
may be triggered if the alarm is set
and the power window is closed
using the door lock linked power
window operation function.
(P.73)
*: These settings must be customized
at your Toyota dealer.

My dealer only allows one person to put a laptop on cars, ever. And that person is generally clueless about any specific car's systems.
A reasonably competent person, technologically, is far better off just getting the wireless OBD dongle and a tablet and dive in.

If the car has a cellphone data link and wifi capability, it should be possible to use the Entune apps to remote start and a few other things. This is detailed in the OM for the Entune and Nav systems. The caveat here is that all those things have to be enabled and running, with all the ramifications of that.

Edit to add: Do not rely on the OM "customization" section to be correct. Often they change what settings can be modified and don't update the manual.

Thank you so much for your input Quickdtoo.
I'll keep you posted once I visit the dealer at my 1st. oil change.
Guess they'll lighten my wallet for the programming.

Thanks Rdgrimes. I will pursue this issue because it is a necessity here in the Caribbean. Cars get very
hot every day while parked, and it is a pain to get in a hot car even while leaving the windows a little cracked open.

Entune Remote Connect app can remote start, check status, lock/unlock, open/close windows and more, all by cellular connection and by wifi from the phone app, no apparently range limit other than the data connection limits to the vehicle, but it's a subscription service, after the 6 month trial it costs $8 a month or $80 a year plus tax. Remote start can also be done with the wireless remote within normal remote range, but the subscription needs to be maintained. Remote Connect is only available on Entune Audio Plus and Entune Premium w/Nav head units.

My dealer has always done complimentary customization changes at the first service visit, it won't hurt to ask, after all, how can they expect you to know everything that can be done, without reading the owner's manual which you get with the vehicle at the time of delivery, even most Toyota techs and sales people don't know everything that's customizable.

People should think twice, three times, before having a car with active cell data and wifi links. It may seem convenient, but the risks are considerable.

Correction, it can't open/close windows, only lets you know if they or the moonroof are closed or open.
