PowerShell How To: Find all users where account is inactive

I was recently asked asked to find all the users in Active Directory where their account was inactive.

There is a PowerShell commandlet called Search-ADAccount that you can use to find if the account is inactive by using the parameter -AccountInactive.

This is kind of crude but works well. I couldn’t figure out how to get the headers into the csv so I simply did a write-output for the first section.
