This is one of those "if you have to ask how to change it, you
probably ought to leave it alone" situations. But on the "Port
Settings" tab of the device in Device Manager that you want to edit
you would choose the [Advanced] button which would bring up a panel
that would allow you to adjust the COM Port Number. But you would only
be able to choose COM3 if COM3 is still available. If COM3 has already
been assigned to another device, then you would not be able to choose
it. You would have to change the other device's COM port from COM3 to
another available COM port to make COM3 available for your programming
