    Try searching for them with 'Find profiles'. The list is empty until you search for a specific profile. You can search on accountname and preferred name.

  • is there a way to display all user profile? like typing " * " in the Find Profiles? Oct 23, 2015 at 7:16
  • You can try searching for the domain part of the usernames. But mind you, the results are limited to 50 max

You need to type in search query in the Find profiles field and click Find in order to see any profiles.

* is not possible, but if you type in part of the domain, you should get all users, e.g., if user accounts are DOMAIN\user, you could search with DOMAIN to get all users. Pretty close to *, I'd say.
