IE7 and RUNAS Part II

January 16, 2009

Here is a follow up to one of my older posts called IE7 and RUNAS — I found a slightly faster way to work around the problem of IE7 and the its inability to use the RUNAS function.

Side Note: This problem only exists in IE7 and XP; from what I have read Vista does not have this problem

Try this when working in a XP network:

Start — run and then:

runas /user:<your domain>\<administrative account> “explorer /separate”

So if your domain was named Friday and your administrative account was named Elvis it would look like this:

runas /user:friday\Elvis “explorer /separate”
