Windows 10 Com Ports

If one of the updates of Windows 10 made your Com port(s) go away, here’s the solution.

  1. Open “Device Manager
  2. Select menu “Action” -> “Add legacy hardware“, then Click “Next
  3. Select “Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced)” -> then click “Next
  4. Scroll down, then select “Ports (COM & LPT)“, then click “Next
  5. Select “Manufacturer” as your need, (in this case, I’m selecting standard type or default option) then click “Next
  6. Finish!
