Add multiple users to an AD Group via PowerShell Script

Below are the commands that can be run as a PowerShell Script to add a list of users to AD.

$Group1 = Read-Host "Enter the Group Name to which users have to be added :"
Add-ADGroupMember -Identity $Group1 -Member (Get-Content c:\Temp\Users.txt) 


Ø  Login to the server with AD role.
Ø  Create a text file C:\Temp\Users.txt and store the user names you want to add or remove in AD.
