The Runas administrator is the administrative role that allows the system to manage the different user accounts. You can either install a new one or edit the existing one. It also acts as the back up account that can be accessed if you want to change the password of the system. To edit the existing account, you will have to open the Runas manager. There are also some steps that you need to follow so you will be able to effectively manage your users accounts.
First, you need to determine where the user will login to the system. To do that, you will have to type the login name that will be displayed in the Runas window. It is recommended that you use lowercase letters and numbers so that your computer will be able to recognize the user name. After you enter the login name, press Enter and then close the box where you typed the login name.
Now that you know where the user will be logging in, you need to find the login for each user that will be added to the system. There are two ways to do it. You can use the keyboard or you can use the command line interface. If you want to use the command line interface, you just have to click Start and then click Run. Once the Run menu appears, select Accessories and then double-click Users. Once the Users folder appears, right click on the administrator account and select Properties.
Now that you know where the user will be logging in, you need to specify the username and the password of the group. In the Select Users window, type the user’s name and click OK. Right after that, you will have to type the password that the administrator account will be using. The password will be required in order to access the Runas menu.
To change the password for a particular account, you will need to select Run As Administrator and then double-click Runas. Here, you will have to enter the username that the administrator will be using and click OK. Then, you can choose to change the password for all the users or you can set a certain password to be used only by the administrator account. Now, you will be able to see all the passwords that you have set up in Runas. The password for the administrator account must not be set to expire as this will cause some problems when you log on later. Once you have completed the above mentioned steps, you can now log in to your account and see how easy it is for you to manage your users.
