Run SET and look for username and if connected to domain then look at userdomaindomain.  You could also run WHOAMI to show you the username.

you can type:

echo %username%

That'll give your logon name.

Hope this helps!

whoami

is the easiest and its a good way to check to make sure you are using an elevated account in case you have separate user and admin accounts.
