I have both an STM32 Nucleo and STM32F429I-DISCO discovery board. On the Nucleo the ST-LINK is version 2-1 which creates a virtual COM port on Windows that is connected to USART1 of the target MCU. This is very handy for debugging messages.

On the STM32F429I-DISCO USART1 RX and TX can also be connected via solder bridges to the ST-LINK MCU, but it is an ST-LINK/V2.

Can I flash the ST-LINK/V2-1 firmware on the STM32F429I-DISCO to have a virtual COM port there, too?
