This minHour teaches you how to look up the Security Identifier (SID) of another user on a Windows PC.
Press ⊞ Win+X.
This opens the Windows “power user” menu at the bottom-left corner of the screen.
Click Command Prompt (Admin).
A confirmation message will appear.
Now you’ll see a terminal window displaying the command prompt.
Type WMIC useraccount get name,sid.
This is the command to display the SIDs of all user accounts on the system.
- If you know the person’s username, use this command instead: wmic useraccount where name=”USER” get sid (but replace USER with the username).
Press ↵ Enter.
The SID is the long number that appears after each username.
