Right click the computer, then click properties then click the object tab
Another tab you can select is the attribute editor and scroll down to distinguished name.

if you want to do a powershell command

It should be noted that, if you're not on a domain controller, you will need to install the Active Directory module for Powershell and, as part of your powershell sequence/script, you will need to

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

for the Get-ADComputer command to work.
