Hello, I wanted to ask about my computer HP Pavilion 500-208er, it has 6 USB ports, which of them are 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1?

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
