At many of our clients, the menu link in SharePoint to “Log in as another user” is disabled or missing. You could simply run IE as another user, but that may not always work if you need to run as a user that is on a domain not trusted on your local machine, or you may be stuck using the current user context because you have to leave one instance of IE open to keep a web-based VPN connection open.
