How to Run as Different User for any Application in Windows 10

Windows 10 - Run as Administrator

As you might have noticed, it is not possible to Run as different user for any application from the Windows 10 Start menu. You can only Run as Administrator choosing via a Right-click action from the More section.

  • Open file location of the shortcut from the start menu thereby the selected application is selected and shown in the Windows Explorer
  • Now, hold Shift + Right Click to access the menu
  • Here, you can find the option to Run as different user as well as Run as administrator

Use Case

  • When there are multiple user accounts, you might need to run an application with their own data from another account without signing out from your current account.
