This subject has arisen previously and although I can’t remember all the dialogue, I do know that my Optima is equipped with the means to open and close the windows, using a press and hold of the door lock/unlock button. I’m fairly confident that owners of at least one other model - I think one or two of the Sportage range - reported the same facility.

As for the horn in your car, why? I could count on the fingers of both hands the number of occasions I have found the need to use that facility in six decades of driving.

Sadly not the current Sportage GT-Line, I've just tried again. :)

i have seen on another forum that there is a way of getting the mirrors to fold when the doors are locked but it means messing with the wiring which i wont bother with

Folding mirrors are an easy DIY job, I did the conversion on a KX4 2013. Modules are available for less than 15 quid mine was about 8 quid with discounts. Removal of the drivers door card videos are on the interweb, in short splice a few wires and connect a few connectors.
Mine was similar to this you need to state the vehicle.
US $18.88 |General type AUTO Intelligent Car Auto Side Rear View Mirror Folding System|system|system cars - AliExpress

There is some info here, although this is a conversion to folding mirrors for a vehicle without them.
The wiring diagrams are useful.
