Serial communication over the USB port is a great way to have your pi Pico talk to your pc. Also, before posting a question on Stack Exchange, look up what you are trying to do on google. I’m sure that there are plenty of guides that show you how to have your Pico and pc talk to each other.

  • I tried but most of these tutorials use a serial monitor or let the pc communicate with the pico but I want the pico to communicate with my pc May 22, 2022 at 8:10
  • I know that this is a little late, but try looking up having the pi pico communicate with Python.
