Right now I use a powershell script to see the currently logged in users. But I don't see if there session is idle, active or inactive. I can see when the session was started but that's it. Is there a easy way to see how many users are currently logged in on the server I am logged in and probably see their status? It should not be remotely executed. I would like to avoid third party tools if possible.

Use the query user command

Query User Command

Open the Task-Manager and see the users tab. There you will find a list of users and their status.
