so I have a 2000 s10 ext cab, couple of months ago the driver's window wouldn't go back up unless I rolled both windows up at the same time, this happened once so I changed the switch in the door. a few more months go by and I can't get my window to go up at all so I left it down for a few days and kept trying it and eventually, it came up, but now it doesn't work at all. I rolled it back up this time by jumping the motor from a Milwaukee battery. I checked all fuses and relays idk where to go from here also the passenger window still works fine. the motor and switch is fine where do I check now?

Have you checked for power to the switch and motor while trying to move the window? You always want to test voltage under load. Imagine what would happen if all but one of the strands of wire supplying voltage to the motor broke (like in the door jamb area). You would see normal voltage "at rest", but once you tried to pass a significant amount of current through the wire voltage would drop to a very low level and the window won't move.
