Run as Different User in Windows 7

In windows XP, when you wanted to run as a different user you could by right-clicking and selecting "Run As", in Windows Vista this was missing – although you could use the RunAs.exe in command line to kick off an application as a different user – it was really annoying and painful to do.

Now in Windows 7, Run As is back!

To run as a different user, simply hold down shift and right click on an icon to get the "Run as different User" option.

Very useful in MS CRM for testing our roles for different user.
