Internet Explorer 8

By Pommyboy_FearFactory ·
We are currently upgrading out IE from 6 to 8, however have run into the issue of running explorer as another user... as you already know the process of explorer still uses the current logged in user, i remember reading something about this however cannot find anything to do with it on google, i also remember something about a cmd line switch with some like run explore.exe //domain/user but i cant remember the exact command, any information relating to this would be a great help. i am thinking of creating a batch file so we can just log in with a specified user and then enter in the password that way everyone can use it.

You would do this the same way you did it for IE6 (or any other app). But this brings up another question: Why do you even want to do this? Are you looking at using this to get around some kind of account restrictions on the network or what?

You cant do it the same, because the process explorer runs as the logged in user, the solution is to run a batch file with the following code:

runas /user:domain\user "explorer /separate"
