How do I navigate the windows network using the run -> unc path with different credentials.

I am logged into my workstation with my normal user account.   I need to be able to delete and manage files on a server through the unc path method.  I have a domain administrator account that I do not logon to my local workstation with, but use it to rdp to servers.

How do I, within my workstation environment while logged in as my ad user account,
browse by using unc paths with a different credential?
