Expert Answer:

Dear Student,
 
Due to the door banged, vibrations  are set up, which are trasmitted throughout the wall.
 
But the wall has a higher intertia, and no oscillate at unobserved amplitude, but when the same vibrations are transmitted to windows, with low inertia, we can observe it vibrate.
