Determining and setting group membership from a command prompt

On a Microsoft Windows system, you can determine the username for an account from a command prompt window using the whoami command as shown below.

C:\Users\enzo\Documents>whoami
slartibartfast\enzo

C:\Users\enzo\Documents>

In the example above, the account name is enzo and the system name is slartibartfast.

If you want to determine what groups the account belongs to, which would enable you to determine if the account is in the administrators group, you could add the /groups argument to the command as shown below. I added the /fo list option as well to format the output as a list; if that option isn't specified the output will be in table format.
