I need to know how to connect to a network share using different credentials. I know about mapping a drive using different user but that is not what I am trying to do. I used to know how to do this and for the life of me, I can't remember.

I am connecting to share by way of "Run" \\server\share. I know there is a way I can add credentials to the end of this run command but I cannot remember the syntax. Google has not been much help.


mucho gracias
