I know how to run the explorer on Win XP with admin privileges (for example, here is a description on SO). But is there a way to make those admin explorer windows look different from the "normal" user's explorer windows? For example, different background or frame color?

PrivBar will get you what you want, by adding a toolbar that shows your current privilege level. Go here to get the latest binaries.

Huh. That's a bit higher-tech than what I've got: I just set the toolbar background image for Administrator to something reddish using TweakUI, which doesn't help when I've used sudo and not runas... – SamB Jul 5 '10 at 4:02
... and it seems to work pretty nicely, so +1! – SamB Jul 5 '10 at 4:27
