    When I use the command, "Get-CurrentUser" it outputs the username for the person running the script. The output looks like this:

    AuthenticationType : Kerberos
    ImpersonationLevel : None
    IsAuthenticated : True
    IsGuest : False
    IsSystem : False
    IsAnonymous : False
    Name : domainname\username
    Owner : ——–
    User : ——-
    Groups : ——–
    Token : ——-

    I wanted to assign this entire output to a string. Was trying this:

    [string]$User = Get-CurrentUser

    The value of $User becomes "System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity" instead of a string of the output above. Does anyone know how I can save the output from Get-CurrentUser to a string variable?

    $user = Get-CurrentUser | Out-String
