Open an elevated cmd prompt and . . .

[1] For ALL the Standard User accounts on your computer type => net localgroups users => Enter.
[2] For ALL the Administrator accounts on your computer type => net localgroups Administrators => Enter.

Is there a message generated, if so, what does it say?
Did you run it in an elevated cmd prompt?

Sir,

Running from Win 8 x64 : Exactly Same results from both : Elevated & Normal Command Prompt

1.Results As Below:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200]
(c) 2012 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>net localgroups users
The syntax of this command is:

NET
[ ACCOUNTS | COMPUTER | CONFIG | CONTINUE | FILE | GROUP | HELP |
HELPMSG | LOCALGROUP | PAUSE | SESSION | SHARE | START |
STATISTICS | STOP | TIME | USE | USER | VIEW ]

C:\Windows\system32>net localgroups Administrators
The syntax of this command is:

NET
[ ACCOUNTS | COMPUTER | CONFIG | CONTINUE | FILE | GROUP | HELP |
HELPMSG | LOCALGROUP | PAUSE | SESSION | SHARE | START |
STATISTICS | STOP | TIME | USE | USER | VIEW ]

C:\Windows\system32>


2. When running : NET USER

C:\Users\VineetGarg>net user

User accounts for \\XYZ-PC

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Administrator Guest VineetGarg
The command completed successfully.


Its poor reporting! The Admin account is VineetGarg & no other a/c is there.

3. UPDATE : ''NET LOCALGROUP USERS'' & ''NET LOCALGROUP ADMINISTRATORS'' are doing good from both the normal & elevated command prompt.

NET LOCALGROUPS USERS

NET LOCALGROUPS ADMINISTRATORS

But the Info is poor!

Sir,
They are working but the Info is not so evident : it takes time to understand.
Have a look at the info :

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200]

C:\Users\VineetGarg>NET LOCALGROUP USERS
Alias name USERS
Comment Users are prevented from making accidental or intentional system-
wide changes and can run most applications

The command completed successfully.


C:\Users\VineetGarg>NET LOCALGROUP ADMINISTRATORS
Alias name ADMINISTRATORS
Comment Administrators have complete and unrestricted access to the compu
ter/domain

Members

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Administrator
VineetGarg
The command completed successfully.


C:\Users\VineetGarg>


Here I am aware about only one a/c with Admin privileges that is VineetGarg

All I understand is look under Members But I am really confused!

Thanks & Regards. ...
