I need a powershell command to get when an active directory user got disabled, any help please??
This is a very common task, and a quick search using your post title would show you many results and samples to use.
This specifically what the *eventlog* cmdlets are for.
Get-Command -Name '*eventlog*' | Format-Table -AutoSize
CommandType Name Version Source----------- ---- ------- ------Cmdlet Clear-EventLog 184.108.40.206 Microsoft.PowerShell.ManagementCmdlet Get-EventLog 220.127.116.11 Microsoft.PowerShell.ManagementCmdlet Limit-EventLog 18.104.22.168 Microsoft.PowerShell.ManagementCmdlet New-EventLog 22.214.171.124 Microsoft.PowerShell.ManagementCmdlet New-PefEventLogTrigger 126.96.36.199 PEFCmdlet Remove-EventLog 188.8.131.52 Microsoft.PowerShell.ManagementCmdlet Show-EventLog 184.108.40.206 Microsoft.PowerShell.ManagementCmdlet Write-EventLog 220.127.116.11 Microsoft.PowerShell.Management
Here is part of a large snippet I give out when deliver PS classes, internally and externally. Make this a snippet in the ISE or VSCode or whatever editor you use, so you can pop it up as needed. Keeping all your target help resources in a concise location, ensures you have a consistant starting point.# Get parameters, examples, full and Online help for a cmdlet or function

This translates into you are very new to PowerShell. So, the recommendation is that you spend the time ramping up on it to limit the amount of confusion, frustrations, misconceptions and mistakes you will encounter.
