When Windows 10 installs an update, only a small amount of the work is done during the installation of the patches. Much of the update only happens when you first log into your computer after the update has been installed. It's a well documented problem. Your PC installs updates during the night, and when you log in the next morning it can take up to half an hour or more before your desktop actually appears.
To help avoid this, there's a setting on your PC that you can change. Go into the control panel, look for the updates-related settings, and choose Advanced Options. Then look for the option "Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update". Tick to select it.
With this option selected, Windows will automatically log into the computer on your behalf after an update has been installed, in order that the remainder of the update process can be completed. So when you come to use the machine yourself, everything is ready to go.
If you're still waiting for your computer to receive the Creators Update, change this setting now. It'll make things a lot faster when the update does arrive.
