Hoe to Use "Run as different user" in windows 7
  

My windows 7 runs faster than the windows xp and windows vista. I am looking for information on "Run as different user" option in windows 7. I know the procedure to enable in windows vista. Is that same procedure for windows 7.

Re: Hoe to Use "Run as different user" in windows 7

In Windows Vista, you had the ability to Run a program as an Administrator. But to run programs as a different / another user, you had to use the command line.The Run as different user context menu option in Windows 7 is implemented as an extended menu, which is only displayed if you press and hold the SHIFT key when right-clicking on an executable file or its shortcut.

ShellRunas provides functionality similar to that of the Runas tool to launch programs as a different user. Run this program when it is finished installing, you will be able to right click on application files or other files and will get a new context menu called “run as different user.”

Run as different user feature is built-into as an option in the hidden extended right click contextual menu of Windows 7. The RunAs program runs a program as a different user, requiring the correct domain, user name, and password. The user will be prompted for any required value that was not entered on the command line.

Press and hold the Shift key and right click on the program's shortcut or EXE file, then click on Run as different user.You can use the command prompt and the Runas command but this is not so easy as the old right click command. Type user name and password for the user account that you want to run this program , program will now be running as that user. When done, simply close the program to stop it from running as that user.
