use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update

Automatically finish setting up after update

Updates require to restart your PC and sign in to Windows in order to finish installing the update, which means you might sign in to Windows and find you can’t use your PC until the update is finished. Windows 10 helps prevent this from happening by allowing Windows to use your sign in info to create a special token.

This token is used to automatically sign in after a restart, finish setting up your PC, and then lock your PC to help keep your account and your personal info safe.
To use this option, select the Start button, select Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Advanced options, and then select the check box next to Use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update.
It’s recommended you turn on BitLocker when using this option. This option isn’t available if your PC is joined to a domain or if work or email policies are applied to your PC.

  1. You might wanna explain a little more in “f’er example” terms…….cause I STILL don’t know what you’re talking about.

    How about storytelling mode:
    Say you’re going to sit down for a day of work on your computer……and…..and…

    Say you’re getting ready to go to bed and you go to shut down your computer, then, suddenly…….yada, yada, yada.

    This might help explain what the heck this feature IS……when I would USE it……and WHY I should turn it ON.

    Otherwise, I (and I’m sure others) have no clue what you mean.

  2. Will this also use your sign-in info to bypass the system password (the one at BIOS level) should you have one set?

  3. I understand what this Log-in feature is going to do ….. I will allow your computer to finish the “install” after the updates…. But my question is …. where is the Control we used to have for installing updates? In common language… I am preparing for the most important meeting in 6 months…. I turn off my computer and Auto Updates start… So, I go about my business…shower & shave and pack my turned off computer. I get to the meeting, turn on the computer and the updates start installing ……. after 20 minutes… the meeting breaks up…. with the Egg on my face…. 5 hours later…… my PC is still updating…

    A fluke? not really …. the same thing happened on Saturday while I was home two weeks ago….

    I want full control over when updates occur….. preferably, when I am sleeping…. not in the middle of the fu_king day!
