help with ports USB

in general, usb 3.0 "A"  ports have a small "BLUE" tab that is visible in the port, and have more than 4 gold fingers but the additional fingers can be dificult to sse so using the blue tab is the best way to id a usb 3.0 port


usb 3.1 ports generally use a type "C" connector but can also use a USB 3.0 style port connector 


(google usb type c connector to see pictures)


usb 2 "A" type connectors can have either white or black tabs visible in the usb port and only have 4 gold colered strips visible
