How do I free up com ports on Win 7?
Posted on 2015-01-28
Had to remove some Bluetooth software on a Win 7 PC as it was using ever more com ports. After removal, Windows 7 shows com 2 through com 90 still in use. The procedures I found on the net tell me how to re-use the ports, but not how to free them up without reassigning them. Also, it would be helpful if I could find the list of applications/hardware that is using or supposedly using the ports so that I only free up the ones that are actually not in use.
