View Every Detail Of User Accounts In Windows 10

Regardless whether you have multiple user accounts up and running on your computer, or simply just the one that's dedicated to your very own usage, sometimes you may want to know a few details relative to each account such as the last logon time, allowable password changes, the SID (Security Identifier) and more. As such, In this tutorial, I will show you how to view every detail of each user account In Windows 10.

Moreover, you may also want to see any hidden user accounts, that exist alongside the account you're currently logged Into. Where applicable, the details can Include the domain, InstallDate, FullName, PasswordExpires, PasswordRequired, Lockout and more- as seen In the Image above.

I will demonstrate how to do all this, by using the native utility on the Windows platform, namely the Command Prompt. The same result can be achieved with PowerShell, but I like to keep things simple by using just the one tool. So without further delay, let's rip Into this tutorial.

Step One:

The first thing you need to do, Is execute the Command Prompt with elevated privileges. To do this, open the Search function and enter cmd. Then on the search result at the top, right-click Command Prompt and hit Run as administrator as shown below.

Step Two:

What I'll show you first, Is how to check the details of the user account you're currently logged Into. In my case, I've navigated to Control Panel > User Accounts, and the name of my account Is Hacking Predator (don't ask about the name!!). You will need your exact name In order to execute a command In the next step.

Step Three:

Now go back to the Command Prompt that was executed In Step One above, and enter net user "Your Account Name". In my example below, I've entered net user "Hacking Predator". Then hit the Enter key on your keyboard.

Step Four:

This Is my main Administrator account and along with that, quite a few other details have been returned.

Step Five:

But what about the other accounts Installed on your computer? We'll tackle that right now, by entering wmic useraccount list full and then hitting the Enter key on your keyboard.

Step Six:

I have quite a few accounts on my PC, one of which Is named Windows 10 Tips. Every detail relative to that account has been returned.

Last Step:

Upon scrolling a little further down, as you can see, my Guest account accordingly named Windows 10 Tips Guest Is displayed. There's quite a few other accounts, but It's beyond the scope of this article to cover the lot.

Final Thoughts:

It really doesn't get any easier than this, does It? If you paid close attention to every step, all It takes to view the details on both the account you're currently logged In with and every other one, Is a couple of commands respectively. Although It's not really a necessity to execute the Command Prompt with elevated privileges, It's good practice to always do so. As such, you will not experience Issues with tasks that require full admin rights.
