You can also configure a shortcut to always run using alternate credentials when opened by configuring the Properties for the shortcut as follows:
1. Close the program highlight the Shortcut to the program icon on you desktop using a single left-click. Right-click on the icon and select Properties.
2. In the center area of the Properties dialog box find the checkbox labeled, "Run as different user". Select the checkbox and click OK to close the Properties dialog box.
3. Double-click on the Shortcut to compmgmt icon to start the console.
4. You will be prompted with the "Run program as other user" dialog box. Enter the credentials in the appropriate fields. and click OK .
This technique may be used for any shortcuts that you desire to create and always run under a different security context.
