Active Directory Explorer


AD Explorer display information in two panes: the left pane shows the AD object tree and the right pane shows the attributes defined for the selected object.

Navigation History

AD Explorer keeps a record of your steps as you navigate through objects. You can go forward and backward through the navigation history by using the Back and Forward entries in the History menu or the corresponding toolbar buttons.

To view the full navigation history, open the History toolbar button. You can jump to a particular object in the history by choosing it from the displayed list.


Choose Add to favorites from the Favorites menu to add an object to the favorites list, which AD Explorer stores in the Favorites menu. Right click on an entry in the Favorites menu to delete or rename the entry.
