Launch ‘Configure advanced user profile properties’ from Command Prompt

If you’re a Windows sysadmin in an environment with locked down user rights, and you want to perform an administrative action without needing to log out a current user, you can find yourself in a tight spot. Luckily, if you Shift-RightClick Command Prompt, click Run As another user, and login as your admin user, you can launch administrative tools all without needing to log out.

One such tool is the User Profiles window under Advanced system settings. To launch it from Command Prompt, type:

rundll32.exe sysdm.cpl,EditUserProfiles
