You will need software to run a terminal connection so you can connect through the console port of your routers and switches. The old faithful program has always been hyperterminal developed by Microsoft but this hasn’t been updated for years and is not very flexible.
The best program to use is Putty and best of all it is free. You can download putty here.
You simply install putty, plug your console cable in and connect over serial COM 1 port. If you are using the USB to COM adaptor you can look in device manager under COM and LTP ports and see which COM port you have been allocated.
