    That's so you can play a slide show of all your images. Don't know a way to turn it off.

    Yes, you can turn it off. In settings, passcode lock screen. Ya, I know, that is somewhere Microsoft would put it.

    Sorry, I went there and turned it off but it had no effect. The icon is still there.

    Maybe it works for me because I use a pw on the lock screen. So, this prevents someone from picking up the iPad and viewing photos without entering a password.

    I tried it with & without a password and it didn't work either way. Actually you need to use a password to be able to turn the slider off or on. If you have "No Password" selected the Photo slider is "grayed" out and cannot be selected.

    Update: What you must do is have the password activated. It is possible to select the password option turn the photo slider off and then cancel the password. However doing this puts the icon back on the screen. So you must have the password option activated in order get rid of the photon icon on the unlock screen.
