How to search for Active Directory people or distribution lists on Windows 7? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    On Windows XP you can search for AD users or DL using the Find People tool (Start > Search > Por People ... and then "Look in:" AD).

    Does this feature exist on windows 7? How to get it?

    Could someone help?

    Thanks.

    Best Regards,

    When you are connected to your domain network.

    Go to Orb - Computer - Network - double click your computer name -

    This will bring up the Search Active Directory tab click once and you will now have the

    Find Users, Contacts, and Groups.

  • It's 2011 and I have never heard that term used.  We still use "Start Button" to refer to the "Orb".

  • Or you can execute this command:

     

    "C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe" dsquery.dll,OpenQueryWindow
