Remoting to Windows 10 logs me into Other User instead of my domain account.

I am recently using Win 10 on a domain network. I log into as usual with my username and the domain and a password. Works great when I am in front of the computer. Anytime I need to log in or after a reboot, there is an option for Other User. I look at that similarly to options I get with Win 7. Where it says switch user.

The issue is when I use RDP to remote into the computer using the computer name and the other credentials needed, it will not remote to my account I am using. It remotes into other user. I do not know how to change that.

Hi, is it possible you have a local user with same username as the domain user you're using to logon locally?
double check you're specifying DOMAIN\username as username.
You can check the user profile you're logging into by running CMD and then whoami. This may give hints on the source of the issue.

Remove the login from Credential Manager (Control Panel) on the target machine. Restart it and try remoting into it again.
