USB stands for universal serial bus, and it is one of the greatest things to happen in computing over the last few decades. Without it, we would be pretty much screwed when it comes to trying to connect out devices to the computer.
USB cables make connecting the mobile devices to the computer a breeze, but when connecting to the Windows operating system, we need to install the USB driver also to help out. The USB Drivers vary depending on your device. Luckily these days things are pretty simple and manufacturers have only the one package to install for most devices.
