Run as...

This might be a nobrainer for most of you but I have to put it up here since I'll have to run back to it from time to time.

Here is how to run "any" program as another user, without any installs or modifications:

  1. Type cmd in the Run-box of the Start-menu
  2. Type the following command:
    runas /user:[domain]\[user] [program]

    Of course, exchange [domain], [user] and [program] to the things you'll need. Example to start Management console as MARCUSADMIN:
    runas /user:MARCUSOFT\MARCUSADMIN mmc
  3. Type the password of the user you want to run under
  4. Viola! You are running the program as the other user.
