No Com Ports

My windows 10 desktop has no COM PORTS I have attempted installing them at my device manager with legacy but none of them seem to work. Can any one tell me how to get com ports to work on my computer?

Nearly all new machines now do not have COM port. I used to use USB-COM adapters which are similar to the following adapters

Thanks for the reply I am trying to connect my ham radio to Ham Radio Deluxe program. It requires A USB B from radio to computer. At the computer there needs to be a com port for the connection. I will consider your solution, but first I am going to see if a virtual comport will work.

Thanks so much for your input.
