Hi swatkats

If you are referring to a standard serial COM port, usually labelled COM1, COM2, COM3, or COM4 - go to the Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager/Ports (COM & LPT)/ right-click your COM port /Properties/Port Settings/"Bits per second"... and choose the speed from the drop-down list. The other settings that must agree with your device for the port are also there in that Port Settings screen: "data bits", "parity", "stop bits", & "flow control".

If you are referring to a "virtual" serial port that is actually used by a USB device, check the documentation for that device, as proprietary drivers or control software often provide the means to change such settings.

Communications software can often change these settings at their startup and shutdown (especially for modems, for example).

Best of luck
