I want to open a new powershell.exe as a user but with the administrator rights (this user is already added to administrator group).

To open new powershell.exe as user, I used this command:

runas /profile /user:emma powershell.exe

Can I change it somehow to get what I need?


You want something like

Start-Process powershell.exe -Credential "emma" -NoNewWindow -ArgumentList "Start-Process powershell.exe -Verb runAs"

Assuming Emma is an admin.

    @Karo936 if emma is already logged in, you can just start powershell -verb runas – SimonS Nov 30 '18 at 15:09
