Taiob Ali has a few tips for us around using SQL Server Management Studio:

Opening SSMS as a different user

I have two Active Directory Accounts. Once I use to login to my workstation and everything except working inside Databases. For that, I needed to open the SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) with my admin account. I created an instance of runas application on my desktop to do that. Saves me a few clicks and type in my user name and password every time I launch SSMS. Text of the target.

Click through to see how that works. This is quite useful when you’re working in multiple environments or across multiple domains, especially if you slap on the /netonly parameter.
