Windows 11 along with all previous versions of Windows support the net user command. The net user command helps in adding or modifying user accounts or even displays user account information. To use the net user command, you must be logged in as administrator and have elevated rights. This is nothing complicated. All it means, you need to have an administrator account.

If you use the net user command without command-line switches, the user accounts for the computer are listed in the result. The user account information is stored in the user accounts database and this command works only on servers. In this article, I will show you how to use the Net user command in Windows 11.
