Open up Active Directory Users and Computers, and Navigate to the OU where your computers are located.

Then right-click in the white space within right pane and select "Export List". In the window that comes up, change the file type to CSV and then open the file within excel.


If the computers you want on the list are located within multiple OU's, then repeat this process for each OU.

If you got a lot of OU's:

Install Powershell

Install Free PowerShell Commands for Active Directory :
