AD Extractor – Extract members of AD group with a simple tool!

Morning everyone!

With the basic code from Vikas Sukhija i created this GUI around Vikas code. Mainly to help more people utilize his code (that aren’t comfortable around code), but also so that i could reduce the amount of clicks.

The full source is available here if you don’t want to download the .exe

 

What does AD Extractor do?

AD Extractor is using ADSI to search the AD. You can extract members from both security and distribution groups. There is also no problem with extracting computers and/or users from a group. I added a simple GUI so that you could export a complete list with just 2 clicks. You obviously need the appropriate permissions to run this program. As for now you can only export a list to .txt, but in the future i will add .csv support (if there is a demand for that)

Have a great day! 🙂

[Registry] How to Restore Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10

Hi everybody! 

Are you tired of the Windows 10 Photo app? Or simply want to change back to the old photo viewer?

In this post i’m going to show you how to get the Photo Viewer (formerly Windows Picture and Fax Viewer) back in Windows 10.

There are several articles out there that show you how to do this, some that i’ve tried worked, some did not.

Anyway, these registry keys is needed, and no reboot is required.

 

How it’s done:

  1. Download this .reg file (or copy/paste the raw code from pastebin)
  2. Unzip RestorePhotoViewer.reg
  3. Run the .reg file, and press Yes to continue
  4. Now you can associate images files with the classic Photo Viewer

 

I have only verified this to work in 1709 and 1803 only, comment down below what other release ids it works/doesn’t works on.

Modifying the registry could create problems on your computer, so please make sure that you know what you’re doing when running .reg files.

How to Reset the Color of the Command Prompt in Windows 10

Hi everyone!

Recently bumped into an issue regarding the classic command prompt (CMD).

 

Problem:

CMD colors are changed so that you are unable to see the text, and cannot change back (for whatever reason)

 

Solution:

Change the REG_DWORD DefaultColor to “7

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor
Set-ItemProperty -Path 'HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor' -Name DefaultColor -Value "7"

 

Voila!

Procmon saves the day!
