Front and Back USB Ports

Most modern PCs have USB ports in the front and back. For best results, use the back ports for hardware such as printers, scanners, keyboards, mice, card readers, or digital camera docks—things you never or rarely unplug.


Save the front USB ports for things you plug in/unplug often like digital cameras, mp3 players, “thumb drives”, etc. This is not only a better way to organize you peripherals, but it also keeps your front ports open for quick hardware switches.
