I am browsing Shared folders on a Windows network through Samba.

When I first opened a system on the network I was asked for a login username, password and I checked the save-password setting. Now the shared folder opens directly without asking for authentication.

I want to browse the folder using a different user which has more access rights. How should I do that?
