Perhaps if you turn this into a working command and it could list all the usernames on the computer it could have a use.

One question not to sound negative, but wouldn't they already know their username :-)

Print the username vertically (one character per line):

rem ------------------------------
SET Iam=%username%
for /l %%i in (0, 1, 32) do @ (
SET TheChar=!Iam:~%%i,1!
IF [!TheChar!] NEQ [] ECHO !TheChar!
rem ------------------------------

I'm a professional, please don't try this at home! :)

I tested this on Windows 8, but it should work on previous versions.
