switching docker in windows-latest microsoft hosted agent to run linux container

I have a pipeline that is using a windows-latest microsoft agent. one of the tasks is a powershell script that runs a small application using docker. however the docker in the agent is set to windows containers, but the application is in a linux container. How do I switch the docker in the agent from windows to linux?

I found online that one can switch with dockerCLI.exe but i didn't find DockerCLI.exe installed on the agent. Thanks

Thanks for the reply. @Sumarigo-MSFT

On the first answer the last response indicates that DockerCLI is only installed with "Docker Desktop for Windows". We looked around at the different folders in Program files on the MS agent and we could not find DockerCLI.exe.

On the Second answer It mentions installing Docker Enterprise. We are running a Microsoft Hosted Agent. not sure how to install this Package. If you think this is worth trying please indicate how.

On the Third answer they mention DockerCLI but we could not find that in the MS Hosted Agent.

Thanks in advance.
