Try this:

Start > Run > type: regedit [ENTER]

In the registry editor, browse to the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
Right-click the "Main" key in the left tree view and select "Export" - give it any name you like, this is just a backup.

In the list of values on the right hand side, search for one called "Window Title"; if you find it, delete it.
Then right click inside the "Type" or "Value" column, select "New" > "Expandable String Value", call it "Window Title". It will be created as an empty REG_EXPAND_SZ data type; right-click on the name, select "Change", and in the text box type:
%USERNAME%

Click Ok, leave the registry editor, and test with IE.

I see.
There is no other environment variable in Windows that would hold a user name, especially not that of the "run as..." user. So I hoped that my suggestion would work.
Also, there is no known "Window Title" data string for Internet Explorer in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE branch of the registry.

Which means that, in my firm opinion, there is ultimately no way to achieve what you are trying to do.

Are you certain that the username changed in the video you saw? Because it might have been just the same thing as when you tried my suggestion: the active user's name, but not the one that it was run as.
