Modify Logon Setting in IE When Group Policy Doesn't Allow It

Recently I needed to "Prompt for user name and password" when logging into my Local Intranet zone so that I could test as multiple users.  A colleague of mine made me aware of the registry settings for these option so you can modify.  These settings will be overwritten next time Group Policy is applied but they provide a good temporary workaround.

The specific key for the Local Intranet Zone is located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1. The key name is 1A00

Just update this value to 20000 and your setting will now be switched to "Prompt for user name and password"
