Hello and welcome to the forum.

Does everything else work on the car ok, car starts ok ? no warning messages on the dash ?

The Windows will need reseting, this happens when the battery goes flat or is disconnected.

To reset the windows. you need to do the following :-

Open the window (in stages) until it gets to the bottom, then hold the switch in the down position for 5-10 secs. Then raise the window (it will go in stages) until it gets to the top, then hold the switch in the up position for 5-10 secs. You will need to do this for each window.

But bear in mind that each time the battery goes flat the windows will reset and do an you described above.
