This is caused by a defective part called the window regulator, it is what the motor drives to lift the windows up and pull it down. You must remove the door panel to replace the regulator.

Where is the fuse for the Driver Side Window

No fuse. there is a circuit breaker. If other windows work, it's not your problem. Your's is the motor or regulator. could be the the switch also. Not likely though.

Ford focus drivers window stopped working I can't hear the motor going but passenger one is fine

First, use electric-safe penetrating lubricant to lubricate the window switch to see if corrosion has caused the switch to stop making contact.
If that doesn't work, remove the door panel and see if the window motor is getting voltage when the switch is activated. If the window motor is getting voltage when the switch is activated, check to see if the window regulator mechanism has jammed or seized. If the regulator mechanism appears ok, replace the motor.
If the window motor is not getting voltage when the switch is actuated, replace the switch.

If the motor and regulator both work fine or sound like they are engaging when your try to raise the window,but you hear nothing when you try to lower the window then I think it is a pretty safe bet to say your switch is bad.

Drivers window stopped working, i hear a click when pressing button ,could it be a fuse ?

there would be no clicking of it were a fuse. you have a bad window regulator. it is an electric motor and it is allowed to wear out with age, like all electric motors, and the gear teeth wear out and strip too. 10 years is the best you can expect, especially from the most used window. buy a new regulator, and have it installed.

Drivers window will not go up. When you depress the button to close you can hear the motor. So I don't believe it is electrical.

if you can hear the motor trying to work, you have a glide problem,, or,, your motor isn't totally engaging ,, check for 12 full volts at the motor when you push the switch, if you have the full 12,, your motor is worn,, sometimes you can drop the cover, and clean the brushes for a quick fix

Window help

Sounds like the gear drive in the small electric motor that moves the window up and down has broken. You will need to replace the electric motor. You can't just buy the gear for it unfortunately.
