Import the CSV file (sample CSV file) which contains the list of users. On importing the CSV file, from the drop down menu (on the right hand side), select the attribute based on which you want ADManager Plus to search the user objects in Active Directory.

                                                             Or  

Use the  Search option to find the computers (Note: To list all the users just click the Search button without typing anything in the Search Box)

Enable / Disable users:

 

It is mandatory for administrators to keep the Active directory clean .In line with the same, administrators prefer to disable computers that have been inactive for a long time, and then enable them when required. This looks easy if it has to be carried out for just a single computer, but becomes tedious if an organization has a large number of computers. This is when administrators can make use of this feature to Enable/Disable bulk computer accounts.
