Running some applications from menu start in Windows 10 as different user is a little tricky. You can try to click on application icon in the same time holding
Shift button, to see additional option, but it doesn’t work on all applications. Especially not on these pinned to Menu Start.
Run as different user option in two ways.
To enable a registry value to show
Run as different user in the right-click menu (in Windows 10 Start screen). Copy the following lines to Notepad, and save the file with
.reg extension. For example:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Now just double click on
showrunas.reg. Logoff and login back, or restart Explorer shell for the change to take effect.
Open Powershell and run command:
runas /user:username@domain "mmc.exe dsa.msc"
In this example you will run Microsoft Management Console with Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in. Just change

Copy below code and save as
Run this script in PowerShell and follow instructions on screen.
