Username grayed out in SQL 2005 Management Studio

I'm reposting this question because the solution accepted originally didn't work.
I am running the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio for SQL 2005 on my local workstation.
When I start it, username is grayed out when choosing windows authentication as the Authentication mode.
Is there a way to select a different user name for authentication?
I tried using runas both by right clicking the shortcut and selecting run as, and by creating a new shortcut using the runas parameters to specify a domain name. In both instances, the studio still started with the local login account. Any other ides?
