Typical default COM port is 1 in most term programs. With your USB to serial connector plugged in, check in Device Manager to see what COM port it's set to. If it's a different one from the default in your term program, change one of the two to match the other.

My USB to serial adapter wants to grab something stupid like COM 5 so I manually move it (in DM) to COM 1. You could of course change the COM port used by your term program within it's settings too.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
