Fedora / Samba - In windows is there a way to see who you are logged in to when connected to a samba share ?

Not logged into windows - I know how to do that, we have PCs with just one user.

Say you log into a samba share - is tehre a way to determine what user you used.

Reason - we have 15 users and anyone could be looged into any share.
Would be useful for me to be able to tell.

None, unless you set up Samba as an domain controller and all the PCs need to login to domain to see the share.
Then you have the user information (user name, PC name...).
Otherwise, you can only see active connection.

Did you check qtsmbstatus?
If it is for a mapped drive you can check the default username in the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\NETWORK\Drive\UserName
