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)




If you have any questions or feedback you are more than welcome to post that in the comments below.

Have a great day! 🙂

Retrieve full download URL in Google Chrome

Hello geeks!

What do you do when the Copy link address button isn’t there?

Today i’m going to show you how to retrieve the full download URL (with file extension) for any download in Google Chrome. WGET for example requires the “true” download url, with file extension in order to download the file.

I’m guessing that you’ve already know that you can press “Copy link address” on many Download buttons to retrieve the download URL, if not, know you know.


But what if you’re not seeing the “Copy link address” button, like this?

Or what if the link you get when pressing Copy link address is a redirect or just not the direct download path to the file?

Then you simply do this:

  1. Press the Download button
  2. Open Downloads (CTRL + J)
  3. Right click the downloaded file, and press copy link address


Or if you want to dig down deeper, you could extract the URL using inspect-mode:

    1. Start Google Chrome, and have your download button ready, don’t press it yet.
    2. Open Inspect-mode (CTRL + SHIFT + I)
    3. In Inspect-mode, select Network
    4. Press your Download button
    5. Now immediately after, press Stop recording network log (CTRL + E)
    6. Now you should see the raw file under Name, in this example ChromeSetup.exe
    7. Right click on ChromeSetup.exe -> Copy -> Copy link address (see picture below)
    8. Now you should have copied something like this https://website.com/file.exe

I hope that this was helpful & feel free to comment down below if you have any questions 🙂
