windows.forms NTauthentication (not user.identity)

In asp.net applications, I can simply use User.Identity.Name to retrieve the NT Account (domain/account) of the user.

Now, how do I do this in a windows.forms (desktop) application? For the life of me I can't find where the NT Account info is stored.

Thanks for the help,
Roger

It is in the
System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity object.

Use the GetCurrent method.  The domain\userid are stored in the Name property.
