Check the fuses, if not its possible your convenience unit has failed.

Could also be a short in the wiring in the door frame that powers those things. This will take some diagnosis to determine for sure.

I agree with the fuse thing, even if it looks okay, replace it. Also check behind the box for the connection of the wire too the fuse box. Otherwise, wiring will need to be diagnosed. Check the voltage on the fuse as well..

Check the master fuse box located under the hood (usually by the battery). It contains 5 master fuses that are further seperated at the fuse box located inside the vehicle. Hope that helps.

check your fuses

It would most likely be the comfort/convenience control module that would cause all those thing to fail at the same time. Get that checked out.

x2. Check the CCM. It's located under the driver's seat.

Open the drivers door, there is a black plastic/rubber moulding that protects the wires going from the frame to the door. This is a very high stress area and prone to breaking the wires. Pull back the moulding to reveal the wires, carefully inspect for any breaks. Almost all of the volkswagens run the wires to the switches and then out to the other doors. So if you have breaks in the wires going to the switches, they will be unable to send the corresponding power to the other door switches.

I have power to all switches,but windows don't work
