  • Clearing the RUNAS domain\username dropdown

    Good Day:
    When you right click on a shortcut/object, and select RunAs, then select "Run as the following user", there is a dropdown box that allows you to put your domain\username in there.
    My current list is full of OLD information and I need to clear it out so I can populate it with the current information.
    I cannot seem to find where/how this is done.

    Click on the drop-down, point at a wrong entry, and press the "Delete" key.

      Tom, I think that this will only delete the shown value once, not for good from the list... I did not find so far the registry key that holds this list...

        For all I know, it is not showing any MRU list content. The drill-down list is just showing the users that are currently member of the local group Administrators and have a direct membership (not via nested goups) there. I never have seen old users in that list, or am I missing something?

          Any one on the system, Privledged or not, can use the RUNAS command, that is the whole idea, so a non prov. user can do priv. stuff when needed.
          If you select an entry in the list and delete it, it is only for the current time.
          The next time you open the list it is still there.

            Read REMS comment again - he didn't say others can't do it - he said the names in the list were those who had membership of the local admins group directly. So in other words, by default, you can "RunAs" any local admin or you can type another user name and password in.

              Or, in other words, if you want to clean up that list, then clean up the local Administrators group...

                  Go to Start + Control Panel + User Accounts + Choose your account + Then delete whichever accounts you don't need.

                  You can also add accounts.....
