    Managing Files and folders

    Hello,

    We have been rolling out Windows 7 for a while now. A Large majority of our ICT team now have this. Obviously with Windows 7 there has been a lot more attention to security, especially the inability to elevate the explorer process.

    Under XP we would run explorer with an elevated account, to allow us to manage user files\folders on our servers. We're reluctant to go down the road of installing XP Mode, and Ideally don't want our staff to RDP to a server to make changes. There are some 3rd party tools out there that appear to carry out what we require, but we've had varying levels of success.

    Is anyone else trying to manage their files\folders with elevated priveleges? how did you achieve this?

    You can run explorer with an elevated account in Windows 7 as well.

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > Shift+Right-Click Windows Explorer > Run as a different user.

    Unfortunately that doesn't work for us. We're running in a multi domain environment. When I try to enter credentials from the other domain I get the error below.

    The account I'm elevating has full control over explorer.exe
