Stopping driverís window half way

I would like to be able to stop the driverís window part way up, like the other 3 windows. I want to be able to mount a camera on the half-open window, but the usual behavior of my window is full open or full closed. Is there a way to do this as-is?
Any suggestions for installing a switch to allow the window to be part way open?
Thanks!

Don't push/pull the switch all the way, auto open/close only works if the switch is fully depressed or pulled.

With the key off, pull up on the switch gently until you feel a "click". Once you feel the click, the window will go all the way up or down. If you pull up the switch and let go before the click, the window will only go up or down and stop at that point. It's more complicated to explain than to just try it.

Just push the window button in the opposite button for a fraction of a second.
The RAV will understand that you are trying to stop at that position.

I suspect if you wanted to mess with it you could find the wire on the switch that implements the auto-up/down feature. Disconnecting it would give to permanent manual control.

It's the pedal (or the handgrip) on the right!!

The auto up/down feature on our Ravs is very sensitive. Hard to not activate it; but possible. I think you can shut off the car at the desired window height as it is going up/down. Once you start eh car again it should stay.

I've never had a problem putting them down just a crack for ventilation, just requires a little practice. The '19 has auto up/down on all windows, so that's taking a little getting used to for an old guy!
