you can use the 'runas' command.
from the command line type runas /? for more information

for example, the following command will open the notepad with user ben:
runas /user:ben@mydomain.com notepad

You can also right-click on the item or a shortcut to the item while holding the [Shift] key and choose Run as from there.
