Type COM10 into the box and it will open it.

The only way for a "regular" Win32 program to enumerate the available
serial ports is to literally try to open every single one of them to see
if it fails or succeeds. This takes a bit of time, and can interfere
with other things using the ports on your system. I can add this search
logic to CHIRP, I just hate to solve the problem in that way.

If you'll open a ticket for extending the static list to, say, COM64,
I'll be glad to shove that in to make it more intuitive.
