    "Put up the window." I read it somewhere. Could you please tell me what does it means?
    'I read it somewhere' is not good enough, tufguy.

    You should know by now that we need context to give you a useful answer to questions like this.

    Sorry I don't remember the context. I thought it was like wind up the window.

    Re: "Put up the window" I read it somewhere.

    We only "wind up the window" in a car. These days, when most cars have electric windows, even that phrase is a little outdated. I'd just say "close the window" whether I was talking about a car window or the window in a room.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
