hi..

This can be achieved by using the Batch or DOS Command

The command used to carried out the task is given below: -

net user username

Open in new window


If you were on a domain you would need to add the switch /Domain. In your case, just insert the username.

This will list the most important details of that account, including the expiry date of the user password.

Thanks
