Windows: List all users who are currently logged on

Hi,

if you want to list all Users which are currently logged on to the box use the query command.

List all sessions


c:\> query session
 SESSIONNAME       USERNAME                 ID  STATE   TYPE        DEVICE
 services                                    0  Disc
 console                                     1  Conn
>rdp-tcp#0         user1                     2  Active  rdpwd
 rdp-tcp                                 65536  Listen

Or list all users


c:\> query user
 USERNAME              SESSIONNAME        ID  STATE   IDLE TIME  LOGON TIME
>user1                 rdp-tcp#0           2  Active          .  21.02.2015 19:42

You can also list the processes of the user


c:\> query process
 USERNAME              SESSIONNAME         ID    PID  IMAGE
>user1                 rdp-tcp#0            2   6076  taskhost.exe

>user1                 rdp-tcp#0            2   4840  dwm.exe
>user1                 rdp-tcp#0            2   4680  explorer.exe
