driveingnow Posted May 9, 2008 Share Posted May 9, 2008 Ok so I run as a limited user for security reasons, on Windows XP. But I am always having to go into control panel to do stuff (i.e. Add/Remove programs, Hardware, Firewalls ect.). I have been trying to figure out how to do this for some time, right now I have IE 6 and I just do a Runas on it, then in the address bar type "Control Panel". But I have another computer I have IE 7 on and it won't let me do it there, I also can't get Windows Explorer to open with the runas command. So basically I want to go to Run type in "Runas /user:Admin "...Open control panel" *enter* and put in my password. And there it is, ready for me to use. I can use any help you guys can offer. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
