    How to Add or Remove 'Run as different user' Context Menu in Windows 10

    information   Information
    The Run as different user context menu allows a user to run .bat, .cmd, .exe, .msc, and .msi files with different permissions than the user's current logon provides.

    By default, you will need to press and hold the Shift key and right click on a .bat, .cmd, .exe, .msc, or .msi file to see the Run as different user context menu item.

    When the Run as different user context menu is used, it will prompt the user to enter the user name and password credentials to use.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the Run as different user context menu for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove this context menu.

    Note   Note
    Run as different user will only affect the current instance of the running .bat, .cmd, .exe, .msc, or .msi file. You can open multiple instances of the file with each instance running as a different user.

    If the user you use with "Run as different user" doesn't have the appropriate permissions to access the file, then you will get an access is denied type error message like below.
