I am trying to return the groups that a user is part of. When I get the results, often there is extra spaces to the right of the results. I would like to trim those off. Is there a way to use trim() functionality for the following line?

Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership <user> | select name

You will need to do one of the following.

Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership <user> | Select -Expand Name | Foreach-Object {$_.trim()}

Or

Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership <user> | Select @{name="Name";Expression={($_.name).trim()}}
