For example, I am on the bus. The bus sliding window is open largely and there is quite a strong wind. I would like to ask the one sitting at the window to have it smaller, but not to close it. (Just making the gap smaller, so there is less strong wind) I don't know how to express this act. This may also happen when I want to have someone open the door a bit larger .

"Would you mind having the window opened smaller? "
"Would you mind having the door opened larger? "

Thank you.
