How do I log into Windows 10 Pro with works account

I have added a "work account" to a Windows 10 Pro PC. The PC also has a local administrator accoutn enabled.

When I first boot the PC is stops at the login screen but it doesnt give me the option to login using the works accounts. I just asks me for the administartor password.

How do I log in with this newly added work account?

On logon screen there should be an option to sign in as Other user.

to log in with your work account, enter the credentials user@domain.com or domain\user

I dont have an option to sign in as another account. I cant select another user.

Administrator is pre-selected. It just asks for the administrator account password.

I cant then "switch accoutn" from the administrator account either.

It would appear you did not set it up correctly. Try setting up a new, different account. Once done, can you switch Accounts?

If you still have issues, try running DISM from an Admin Command prompt.

dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

Restart and test.

I do not agree that it is the solution. The question can be interpreted differently and OP needs to confirm
