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

    i said it had no real use in the intro!

    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.
