I'm running Windows 10 Home. Methods such as running sfc /scannow, dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth, or even copying the files from WinSxS don't even work. Is there any other way for me to retrieve the .exe files so I could execute that ms-dos command?

  • What are you trying to run? DISM and SFC do not make applications compatible - they just fix issues – John Jan 4 '20 at 2:26
  • I'm trying to run 'query user' to list currently logged in users. About DISM and SFC part, saw a random site that suggests me to do so. I didn't know if it doesn't work that way, sorry. – Rosen Koenigsogg Jan 4 '20 at 3:15
  • Thank you. Working fine here. So two things: Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run QUERY USER and then Second, this command may not work on Windows Home. I am using Windows Pro – John Jan 4 '20 at 3:18
  • It only works on Windows Pro? Ah well, that seems to be the case. Thanks for the help though. – Rosen Koenigsogg Jan 4 '20 at 3:22

To run QUERY USER, open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run the command.

Note: This only works on Windows 10 Pro
