    The battery on my tablet swelled up and popped the back lid off.

    Put it on hard standing, sand will do too, without anything around and walk away. Next you look up how to dispose of bloated batteries in your general area.

    How do I uninstall Civ 4 Colonization?

    I have tried using Control Panel > Programs and Features as described here. I click on Uninstall and nothing happens. I cannot see an uninstall program in the install directory. I could just delete the folder, but that is not always the best idea. I cannot find the Disk right now, but probably could.

    Look in the install folder for an uninstall exe. Having deleted entire Civ game folders manually in the past, the worst that happens it that file associations are broken. So I'd just delete the folder if you cant find an uninstaller in it's folder.

    On Windows 10, is there any way to disable the thumbnails when hovering over a taskbar button? I tried changing ExtendedUIHoverTime in the registry but it didn't work.

    EDIT: I was able to change the behaviour with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker.
