One power window doesn't work

In my '92 Corsica, the front passenger window doesn't work (luckily stuck in the up position). The other three windows work fine.

I understand that I can take apart the door to figure out if the motor is getting power (to see if the the motor or something else). But, I'm wondering if there's a way to test the switch in the console before taking apart the door. I took the switch off and it looks clean, but how do I know the switch is working? I have a multimeter and can test if it makes/breaks circuits, but I don't know which combination of metal prongs is connected to the switch in question.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

I no longer have my old Corsica or the manuals but I would advise you to check the wires in the rubber boot on both doors. Over time the wires inside can and will crack and break. Have had this happen on other cars over the years...
