Powershell: use logged on credentials to logon to RDP?

Last Modified: 2017-11-17

Is there a way to pass credentials with which I'm logged on to my Windows system to an RDP session (mostly Windows 7/2012)?
So that would be  mstsc /admin /v:$computername
then using  @runas /user:$env:USERDOMAIN\$env:USERNAME  with cachedcredentials.

Please advise.
