Who is logged into that computer?

It’s really handy to know what user account is logged into a computer. There are several commercial tools out there,you can enable a global policy to make this happen. I prefer simple and instant. This is the method I used that worked for me.

First,I ping the computer name to make sure it is on line. Then,if it is active,I can use this method to see what account is logged in. You will need to do this with an account that has domain administrator access.

Open a command prompt and ping the computer’s name. After a good reply,continue on with the following

wmic /node:”computer name”computersystem get username

The return result is:


Very nice indeed and very simple.
