Opening tabs as another user
If you configured a tab to run a shell as a different user, you will be asked for a username and password before opening a tab. To use a domain account, enter your username in the form domain\username
Running a shell as a different user has some limitations:
- User's HOME env. variable must be explicitly set
- If you're running 32-bit Console on 64-bit Windows and attempt to run cmd.exe as a shell, a 64-bit cmd.exe will be started and crash.
- Currently, other user's environment is not loaded and expanded. You can't use env. variables in the shell and startup directory parameters.
- As a consequence, if you leave the shell parameter empty, cmd.exe will be used as a shell, not other user's COMSPEC variable.
