How to open advanced tab of Advanced User Accounts using command line?

Jonathan Woodward 26 Reputation points

Is there a specific run command to directly open the advanced (second) tab of Advanced User Accounts, netplwiz or control userpasswords2? Netplwiz and userpasswords 2 opens the 1st tab, but I want to directly open the 2nd (advanced tab) from the run box or command prompt. I have tried variants as well as exhaustive internet searches, nothing which helped. The syntax should resemble something like below...but none work. Can anyone help please? Thanks!

explorer {98641F47-8C25-4936-BEE4-C2CE1298969D} -page\advanced
Rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Rundll_netplwiz
control userpasswords2 (parameter?)
control /name netplwiz (parameter?) control /name userpasswords2

    Hi ,

    Since I did not find related command prompt, I am afraid there is no such command line can open advanced tab of Advanced User Accounts directly.

    Best Regards,

    It does not seem possible directly (only by program) because it is not a .cpl, but a .exe (Netplwiz.exe)

    Edit: Sorry I just realised this is user profiles from system advanced and not User accounts.

    If it isn't run from an administrative command prompt it will only show the current logged in and user and may not be able to make changes. When run as an administrator it will show others on the machine and can allow you to delete if they haven't logged in since the machine has been booted.

    rundll32.exe sysdm.cpl,EditUserProfiles

    Also to get to the first tab a little easier you can just run:
