Run-It as 1.0 freeware

I’ve been testing several Run-as tools. My prefered one is Run-It as.

See for more info and if you want to download the utility.


This handy freeware is straightforward, simple and does what it is supposed to do. It allows you to create a shortcut to launch a program using other credentials, without having to logoff/logon. You only have to type the credentials once for each shortcut, and the user/password are then saved in a file (scrambled, I don’t know with which encryption). So this would for example allow for someone to work as standard user, except for those programs for which he/she needs elevated rights, which can be launched using a Run-It as shortcut.
