Discussion

If the RunAsType property is set to Self, the desktop runs as the logged-in user with the additional privileges of the groups whose SIDs are listed in the RunAsList property. For example, if the WindowsDesktop right is set to run as Self and RunAsList contains the SID of the Local Admins group, then this desktop runs with the permissions of the logged-in user plus the permissions of the Local Admins group.

If the RunAsType property is set to User, the desktop is run as the user whose SID is listed in the RunAsList property. For example, if the WindowsDesktop right is set to run as User and RunAsList contains the SID of the user Admin, then this desktop runs as Admin with the permissions of that user.
