The specification for my 2017 Optima SW says it has "Remote Window Control", but what is RWC?

Hi,

If you hold down the open button on your key fob it will drop all 4 windows down. If you hold the lock button, it will bring all windows up and close the sun roof, if it is open.

Cheers.

Some call it "Global opening". 
I used to have that on old Vectra's and missed it on a 62 plate i40, a 10 plate Mazda 6 and both my Sportages.

But (on any car) it's usually good practice to only open/close 2 windows at a time.
Otherwise it can fry the motors/electronics over time.
 
Only if not designed to be used in that way.
