I'm looking for a way to remotely open explorer window as admin

Hello All,

Company i work for just started implementing Windows 7. Since change from XP we (local IT) lost possibility to use command "runas /user:…. "explorer /separate" " which we used to remotely connect to network drives which normal users dont have access to (drives with applications, updates, drivers etc.). I'm looking for a way to remotely open explorer window with admin rights. Is there a way to do so? Right mouse click + shift -> run as different user dosen't work.

Depending on what you want to do you could setup either Teamviewer TeamViewer - Free Remote Access and Remote Desktop Sharing over the Internet or a VNC program like TightVNC TightVNC: VNC-Compatible Free Remote Control / Remote Desktop Software either of which will allow you to remotely control the PC

Hello,

It is not what i need - issue is not about remote control over users desktop. We do use remote desktop or communicator desktop share or dameware so we can take control over users machine. Issue is that users dont have admin rights on their laptops so we cant get to some network disks or resources. We used to open different explorer window with my (admin) rights to get to that resources using command i wrote above. Since Windows 7 blocked that in command line im looking for some workaround.
I'll be gratefull for any advice.

Regards,
Janek
