Tweak for 'run as different user' option on taskbar shortcut

There is a registry hack available to stop you having to use the shift key when using the right click menu to run as a different user - see
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/155532-run-different-user-without-shift-right-click-context-menu.html This works fine if you are in Windows explorer but if you have pinned the program to the task bar, it doesn't work adn you still have to hold the shift key down and right click to get the 'run as different user' option on the menu. Does anyone know of a way to permanently set a shortcut on the taskbar to be run as a different user to the one you are logged in as ?

You need to put there a shortcut for batch file instead with content like this:
Code:
Runas /user:johnDoe "C:\mycommand.exe"
More info on Runas command.
