How to perform administrative tasks while logged on as a regular user

Windows 2000/XP Professional enables you to run tools and programs with different permissions than the user's current logon provides. For example, you want to open the Computer Management on a workstation while logged on as a regular user, you can use Run As without re-logon the Administrator.

To start a program as an administrator. click the program executable file that you want to open. Press SHIFT and hold, right-click the program icon, and then click Run as. To log on using an Administrator account, click The following user. In User name and Password, type the Administrator account name and password that you want to use.

Notes: 1. If you want to run a program as a domain administrator, in User name, type the name of the domain followed by the administrator account name. For example:

2. Use of Run as is not limited to Administrator accounts.

3. If you try to start a program, such as an MMC console or Control Panel item, from a network location using Run as, it could fail if the credentials used to connect to the network share are different from the credentials used to start the program. The credentials used to run the program might not be able to gain access to the same network share. If Run as fails, the Secondary Logon service may not be running.
