Is it possible to change the baud rate once the terminal has already been opened in PuTTY? If so, how would I do this?

If it is at all possible, you would be able to do so by right-clicking on the PuTTY icon in the top-left corner of your terminal window, and selecting Change Settings. Then, choose Serial in the left menu and adjust the baud rate setting.
