Export Active Directory Users

How can I bulk export many users from AD into a CSV file with these attributes?
first name, last name, login and email address.

Is there a program, tool or maybe powershell? How do I select the users needed?

This is the script that I use to export users from PowerShell. I believe it includes all of the fields you require and has the formatting to export to excel. This dumps ALL users to excel and then I filter from there depending on what I am looking for.

# To Export
Get-ADUser -Filter {(Name -notlike "*(Administrator)")}  -Properties SamAccountName,GivenName,Surname,Description,DisplayName,Company,Department,Office,EmailAddress,OfficePhone,Mobile,Fax,StreetAddress,City,State,PostalCode,Country,LogonWorkstations,HomePage,Title,Manager,Enabled | Select-Object SamAccountName,GivenName,Surname,Description,DisplayName,Company,Department,Office,EmailAddress,OfficePhone,Mobile,Fax,StreetAddress,City,State,PostalCode,Country,LogonWorkstations,HomePage,Title,Manager,Enabled | export-csv -path c:\temp\ADUsersExported.csv -NoTypeInformation -Encoding "UTF8"

That seems pretty good. Ok, so just paste that above into a .PS1 file and run it from the Domain Controller?

You can paste it right into PowerShell. I generally use the Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell when wanting data from Active Directory.
