    New icons on lockscreen


    Hi. Have been trying on Windows 10, and I noticed that there is a new icon on the lockscreen (unlike the ones on Windows 8.1). Besides the network icon, there is also another one that looks like a screen, but it has a red x in it. Does that refer to tablet mode, like touchscreen?

    That would be a battery level indicator but it's seems to be a bug in the build right now. It will be there whether you have a portable device or not.

    Thanks, Edwin. That makes sense; it's like you show it on the screenshot. Guess, it puzzled me because it's not part of the apps mentioned on the advanced settings.

    You're welcome.
    The Lock Screen shouldn't look like that in Build 10041 though, it should look like this:
    (in case you're wondering what the 'Chess piece' is beside the clock, it means you're signed in. It will also be removed for the final release)

    Granted, not the most important feature but, it can be disabled in various ways on certain versions.
