Get current user in Monad

as anwer to my question in last post,
how many ways can you find to get the current user from MSH,

I came up with this list : *Edit* - repost WITH pipelines

# environment variable


gc env:username

ls env:\username

gci env: -inc username

# registry

(gp "hkcu:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\").'Logon User Name'

gp "hkcu:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\" | fl 'Logon User Name'

gi "hkcu:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\" | gp | select 'Logon User Name'

# .NET







(new -com WScript.NetWork).username

(new -com WScript.Shell).Environment('process').item('username')

(new -com WScript.Shell).ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%username%")


get-wmiobject Win32_ComputerSystem | fl UserName

(get-wmiobject Win32_ComputerSystem).UserName

feel free to add more :-)
