We currently run IE6. Our helpdesk people routinely start admin sessions of Windows Explorer by
- Right-clicking the IE6 shortcut on the quicklaunch bar,
- Selecting "Run as...",
- Entering admin account details
- Browsing to C:\
- Bingo - admin session to the file system
Now, we're planning an upgrade to IE8. On our test machines, if we try to repeat the above process, everything works until we browse to C:. The Explorer session pops up in a second window, but it's not running under an admin session! It's running as the logged on user.
Do our guys just have to learn the cmd runas command and get used to it, or is there a way around this?
