Testing a windows user account password
You may need to test a Windows user account when troubleshooting an issue but the account in questions may not have permissions to say remote desktop etc.
To test the account, open a CMD Window and run the following:
runas /u:domain.local\user1 notepad.exe
You will then be prompted to enter a password. If the password is incorrect you will get the following:
c:\>runas /u:domain.local\user1 notepad.exe Enter the password for domain.local\user1: Attempting to start notepad.exe as user "domain.local\user1" ... RUNAS ERROR: Unable to run - notepad.exe 1326: The user name or password is incorrect.
If the password was correct Windows Notepad will open.
