Ports in Arduino will not work

I am trying to access ports in the toll bar I the arduino software version 1.5.8 but I cannot click the port button. Can anybody help fix this problem?

It means there are no ports for the software to connect to.

To fix this problem, you would read the instructions in the post at the top of the forum, and the getting started guide, on the main Arduino site. Google "arduino getting started"

For anyone to help you, you will need to provide a lot more information:

Operating system.

Exactly what board you have, including where you got it from.

What you have done to locate, and install drivers.
