PopCom – Identify your COM ports

Posted on Monday, August 6th, 2018 in USB by DP

popcom

avishorp has written a small program that pops up a message whenever a serial port over USB device is plugged in, that is available on GitHub (code) and (installer)

PopCom is a COM port plug-in/plug-out notifier. Whenever a USB device that emulates a COM port is connected to the computer, a pop-up will be displayed, describing the device that has been plugged in and the COM number assigned to it. This pop-up helps determining the COM number assigned to each device, a number that is required for communicating with it.

    It is a nice idea, but I had to remove it after finding out it constantly takes 20% of the processor. (draining the battery) It isn’t worth that. So it is back to the Device Manager.
