Display information about local users

Contributors

You can display a list of all local users in a summary form. If you want to determine which account settings are configured for a specific user, you can display detailed account information for that user as well as the account information for multiple users. This information can help you determine if you need to modify a user’s settings, and also to troubleshoot authentication or file access issues.
