+[* blue] [https://sourceforge.net/projects/y-a-terminal/|Download YAT here.] Install YAT using default options, then open it. If the Terminal Settings screen doesn't open automatically, select "Terminal" menu, then "Settings".
+[* blue] Select the correct COM port as the Serial Port.
[* black] If unsure of the COM port number, press ***Windows Key + R*** on your keyboard and type ++devmgmt.msc++

+ [* black] Your Duet will be listed under ++Ports (COM & LPT)++ as ++USB Serial Device (COM#)++ or similar. Use COM# as the Serial Port in YAT.
+[* blue] Set YAT to use <LF> as the end of line character. This will improve the readability of the messages coming from the Duet. Click "Text Settings" in the "Terminal Settings" and change "EOL sequence:" to <LF>. Click "OK" to close Text Settings. Click "OK" again to close Terminal Settings.
+[* blue] Select "Terminal" menu, then "Open/Start" to connect to your Duet. Or click the green tick in the tool bar. If you are connecting to a ***Duet 2 WiFi***, you may see lots of ''"WiFi reported error: no known networks found"'' messages. Don't worry, that's normal, and it means that the Duet is working!
+[* icon_note] Some users have reported issues with YAT under Windows 8 not connecting properly. If YAT does not work, try [http://www.pronterface.com/|Pronterface] to confirm the computer can talk to the Duet
