Windows going down by themselves

Today, we parked our 2012 XLT, locked the doors and went into a local supermarket to shop. About 30 minutes later we came back and noticed all 4 windows were down about 6 inches and the sun roof was partially open. When we left the vehicle, all the doors were locked, all windows were fully up, and sun roof was closed. Luckily nothing was taken but I am concerned on what caused this. Odd also that all windows were down exactly the same amount.

Is there some remote command to cause this to happen?
Could a remote other than mine cause this to happen?
Any other ideas?

Its a feature of the car. If you press the unlock twice and hold the button the second time the windows all open. Its in the owners manual.
Very useful in the summer.

2013 Pilot all windows opened automatically?

You probably accidentally held down the 'open' button on your remote whilst it was in your pocket. Maybe pressure from another key on keychain in a tight pocket. See owner's manual (2012) page 168.

Thanks guys, I usually push the button twice so I hear the horn beep. I will watch what I am doing next time. I did read the owners manual but that was 1 1/2 years ago and a lot of info. If I saw it, I sure forgot it.

No need to hear or activate the horn ( it's annoying), you can disable it-look for the flashing lights instead if you enjoy using the fob ;-). If you don't have any real slow-pokes,make sure everyone is out out of the vehicle, key is in your hand or pocket and with door open, hit the lock button and shut door. Might save you ( or others ) from a wet surprise or items missing from your Pilot.

Keep in mind that the windows-openning feature is on the UNLOCK. No need to worry about tripping it unexpectetdly by hitting the LOCK button to hear the horn chirp.

For those that care, the same function works in reverse with the LOCK button, closing the windows and sunroof. Most of us roll up the windows and close the roof before leaving and locking, so this isn't important.

I disabled the horn-on-lock 'feature' in programming, mostly because K likes to chirp the horn on her 4Runner with the remote button even after the doors are locked from the interior door switch on exit. My hearing is a LOT more sensitive than hers, and the chirp is unnecessary noise polution IMO.
