How do I change the 'run as' setting in a shortcut? The application I am trying to run must always be run as an Administrator.

When I select 'Properties' ' Advanced' I only have an option with a tick box that says ' Run with different credentials' . What I want to do is save the credintials permentaly for this shortcut.

You should be able to use this in the props for the shortcut -

runas /user:domain\username <path to executable/destination>

NOTE there IS a space between the last character of the username and the destination file/folder. You don't need the '<' brackets either.

I believe there is a /savecred switch to store the credentials? Never tried this before myself but can't see any reason it shouldn't work! :)

e.g. runas /user:mydomain\joebloggs /savecred "notepad" would run notepad as the specified user - The first time it will prompt for the password, it should then store those credentials...

You can also create a scheduled task to run your application, scheduled at logon, disable it in its properties, and create the shortcut to:

schtasks /run /tn YOUR_TASK_NAME
