RunAs comd for Exchange Management Console

I installed Microsoft Exchange 2010's "Exchange Management Console" on my Win7 laptop... but I log into my computer as a regular user which doesn't have EMC access...

Instead of right clicking and choosing "Run as a different user" every time, how can I make it automatically open up when double clicked to run as my administrator account every time and perhaps even save my password?

Exchange Management Console path is the default:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Bin\Exchange Management Console.msc"

Thx in advance.

download this http://live.sysinternals.com/ShellRunas.exe (From Microsoft)

then create a shortcut to that file eg:

<shellrunas.exe> "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Bin\Exchange Management Console.msc"

change your icon.. and it'll ask for the user/pass when you run it

I don't know if this will help (it's not something I've tried before), but it might be worth a try. Right-click the program icon, and look at the properties. On the Compatibility tab there is 'Run this program as an administrator'. That might do it.
