Howto runas (other) user Windows 7 right click feature?

Hi,

I know howto run a program as another user, via shift + tab + right mouse button.
However, I want to run “manage my computer” also via another user.

Please advise howto do this.
Note: I need to add a feature "gpmc" but I cannot as standard user, therefore I need to run this as another user.

J.

Create a new shortcut, doesn't matter where. Point the shortcut to compmgmt.msc and save it.

You should now be able to shift + right click this shortcut and runas.

Thanks! But actually I need the Windows features, any idea on that one?
Btw, isn't there a tool that can make this process easier?

Or a list of processes like compmgmt.msc ...

you can create a shortcut to "control" which will give you runas access to control panel as a whole. Or, if you specifically want "programs and features" create a shortcut to "control Microsoft.ProgramsAndFeatures"

If you want a list of all the management snapins simply launch (or create a shortcut to) "mmc". Under the file menu you'll have add/remove snapins which will provide access to things such as computer management/services/event viewer etc.

Simpler than making  a shortcut?  The shortcut to control idea should work.  You can also save those panels for future use so you do not have to do over and over.
