Windows 7: How to find currently logged in user on remote computer.

How to find currently logged in user on remote computer.

I currently maintain several computers remotely. I have a need to find out which standard user account is being used with out the user knowing. I have found a number of batch files that use commands that would probably get me in trouble. Even a popup on the accounts page that I could call up (display for a few seconds) that I can install. The administrator is my daughter and the standard accounts are my grandkids. My daughter is OK with this.
Any suggestions?

Hello Bill,

You should be able to open Task Manager, and look in the Users tab to see what users are logged in. The tutorial below is for logging the users out, but it can be useful as a guide for this.

Hope this helps,
