AD – Finding User Attributes

Two ways that I’m aware of in finding this information out.
AD Explorer method:
  1. Download “AD Explorer” from here:, unzip and run the executable
  2. If connecting to the default domain, just make sure the first radio button is selected (Enter a name for an Active Directory database…) and click OK.  If not, enter in the necessary information.  (Its self explanatory)
  3. Drill down the tree to the required user and you will see on the right-hand side, the required attributes and their values.

User Properties method:

  1. Open Active Directory and go to any user’s properties
  2. You’ll see the the Attributes under the “Attribute Editor” tab.
