Search Active Directory from Windows7 without Active Directory Console

Hi Friends,
Today I got request from one of my colleague; to add/remove member from security groups in AD from User Desktop where Active Directory Users & Computers (ADUC) console is not installed.
The feature of Search People in Active Directory was available in Windows XP, but it is not present in Windows 7.
Here is just a simple command to search AD from Windows 7 Desktop.
%SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\rundll32.exe dsquery,OpenQueryWindow
You can use above command line by following methods
  • Save as batch file and execute the same
  • Create a Shortcut with above command line and name as you like it.
Happy Learning!!!
