If you want to export the list to CSV:

Get-ADUser -Filter * -SearchBase "OU=Test,DC=domain,DC=com" | select UserPrincipalName | Export-CSV -nti C:\users.csv

Make sure advanced options are selected under View. Right-click on the OU object in ADUC, select properties. Go to the Attribute editor tab and look for the distinguishedName attribute.

Or do it with PowerShell:
Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Filter {Name -like "Test"} | ft *Name

Open in new window
