It's not the fuse if your other window is working, so it's probably the switch itself. Use a jeweler's screwdriver, pop the entire switch out, disconnect the harness, and then take the switch apart (you have to use two jeweler's screwdrivers to take the switch apart, one on each tab). Be careful, there are two little copper plates inside the switch that will just fall out...that might be your problem to begin with. There is one plate on each side of the switch, and they can be knocked out of place. Make sure they're alright, and if so it's probably the switch. Check all the wiring too. If you need a new switch check ebay, if there aren't any on there, the fordpartsonline.com has them, but I believe they're around $50.

Or you can check the local scrap yard for switches. The passenger window control in the drivers door went out for me. Both window switches, the door lock switch, and the mirror control cost me $8 at a scrap yard.

when you mean pop switch out do you mean the whole thing, both window switch and mirror control or just the one switch for the driverside window

Just the window switch. Get under the outer lip of the entire switch enclosure and pry up. It should pop right out.
