Search Active Directory (AD) from your desktop

Ever see a Windows group and want to know all the users in that group without having to ask your system admin?  There is an easy way to do this.  Just create this shortcut on your desktop:

%SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\rundll32.exe dsquery,OpenQueryWindow

Call it something like “Search AD”.  Then when you run it you will be given a search box that allows you to find the group and see the users in that group.  Easy breezy.
