Turn-off “Run As” feature of executable files and shortcuts (Current User).

This setting can turn-off the “Run As” feature from the context menu of executable files and shortcuts.

Tweak for : Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista
The “Run As” feature allows the presently logged in user to run a program as a different user. For example, you can use the “Run As” feature to start a program as an administrator if you want to perform administrative tasks when you are logged on as a member of local user. To use the “Run As” feature hold the SHIFT key down and right-click an executable file, shortcut, MMC console, or Control Panel tool, and then select the user name from the droop-down list. To turn-off this feature, apply the following registry setting.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. If the subkey “\Explorer” does not exist, create it as explained below. Then, create a DWORD value “HideRunAsVerb” in the right panel.

Now, right-click and modify its value to “1” which can turn-off the “Run As” option. However, if you want to get back to the original state, change the value to “0”.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
