Windows 7: Device Manager And Having Ports Listings Show Up ?

Device Manager And Having Ports Listings Show Up ?


Opened up Device Manager to look at settings for the various Com "Ports" in use and just can't see any listed. Here's a snap of what I have.

Where do they show, or how can I make them show up ?

Open Devices and Printers
Select one of your printers
Then select Print Server Properties from the menu bar at the top of the Window.
Then select Ports.

Alternatively, when you're in Device Manager select "Show Hidden Devices" from the View menu.

If you still don't see any COM or LPT ports following that, Windows didn't install any. Typically that means the ports were disabled through the BIOS.
