USB settings

The USB option in a virtual machine’s Settings window allows you to configure Oracle VirtualBox’s USB support. A USB controller in VirtualBox is added by default when a virtual machine is created.

VirtualBox can allow virtual machines to access the USB devices on your host directly. To achieve this, VirtualBox presents the guest operating system with a virtual USB controller.

Here are the steps to add a USB Controller to a virtual machine in Oracle VirtualBox:

First, power off the virtual machine.

Next, select the virtual machine from the Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager and click Settings:

VirtualBox Manager GUI

Click Settings>USB>Enable USB Controller:
