Save Time With Windows Updates

This tip applies to Windows 10 Creators Update (Version 1703)

You know the deal. You get a notice that Windows has downloaded and installed updates and needs to restart your computer. So, being a good Windows user, you restart your computer and you… wait  and wait and wait. Sometimes you find you have to wait for 15 to 30 minutes before you can actually use your computer.

I don’t mind a 3 or 4 minute boot-up, because I can make coffee and get ready for the day, but waiting 30 minutes is not my cup of tea… or coffee.

If you’re like me and you’re sick of waiting after Windows installs updates that require a restart… try this:

Open Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Advanced Options

Now tick the box next to: “Use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update.”

      The post is for Windows 10. I have since added a note at the top of the tip. Sorry about that.
