Powershell script to check if using by administrator

Powershell  5.1.14393.1944
Windows 10 Pro

If (!([bool]([Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal] [Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()).IsInRole([Security.Principal.WindowsBuiltInRole] "Administrator")))
  {Throw write-host "You must be running as an administrator, please restart as administrator"}
write-host -ForegroundColor DarkYellow "Show Process" 

Open in new window

Simple script I need to make sure we are running the script using administrator

When I run this I get this

You must be running as an administrator, please restart as administrator
At C:\util\mytest.ps1:3 char:4
+   {Throw write-host "You must be running as an administrator, please  ...
+    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : OperationStopped: (:) [], RuntimeException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ScriptHalted

PS C:\util>

I would like the script to exit clean

Any ideas?

You mainly have to get rid of the "Throw"
If (!([bool]([Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal] [Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()).IsInRole([Security.Principal.WindowsBuiltInRole] "Administrator"))) {
	Write-Host "You must be running as an administrator, please restart as administrator"
	Exit 1
Write-Host -ForegroundColor DarkYellow "Show Process"
