Remotely grabbing username

I am using Get-item env:\username and I would only like to grab the value so I can set it to $strname

PS C:\Users\testuser> Get-Item env:\username

Name Value

USERNAME testuser

Thank you for assistance.

I was able to figure it out.
Thank you

For environment variables, there’s a shortcut syntax:


I’m not sure where “Remotely” comes into this question, though.

$strName = (Get-Item -Path Env:\USERNAME).value
