Using Command Prompt to run a program as administrator

If you want to work for your administrative login or account and do certain installation or task, the Run As command eliminated the need to log off and log on the administrator desktop.

Quick Tip
If you are logged on as limited account you can run a program as a different user or administrator by typing

runas.exe /user:[username] path at the command prompt.
