Q. How do I run a program as a different user?

A. If you right-click a program, you can select Run as administrator. However, if you hold Shift and right–click, you have additional options, including Run as different user. Clicking this prompts for credentials then runs the program under that user context. This is great for demonstrating consoles as different users.
