Hello,That depends on the type of USB-serial adapter. My Edgeport USB-serial box lets me specify what port to use, but Control panel -> Device Manager on my Windows 8.1 machine doesn't.
When I try to plug in something else (in my case a solar guider)That sounds like an application setting. All the software I use has a setting that allows me to specify the COM port to use. This is saved in the app's configuration, so it always uses that port.
I suggest first checking your solar guider settings; then you'll know why it's trying to connect to a specific port.
