Need a USB Connection - Officejet 3830

HP Recommended
HP OfficeJet 3830 All-in-One Printer series
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My computer is too old for a wireless connection (I have internet but it's got a hardwire) and I need to connect by Officejet 3830 with a USB connector - I have no idea what kind of USB  connector to buy - any help? I know the USB side, but are there other choices for the other end?

What you need is a USB A/B cable.

Hi,

You need a standard USB 2.0 cable for a printer, which have a standard connector at the PC end and a square connector at the printer's end as shown below:
