On Windows 11, starting with the “Moment 3” update, the Settings app can show information for USB 4.0 hubs and devices connected to your computer. Although there are not too many devices using this technology, Microsoft is planning in advance and building the necessary settings to control these devices from the Settings app.

USB4 is the next generation of USB devices that enables new productivity scenarios for docking, high-performance peripherals, displays, and charging. The new USB4 page offers details about the capabilities and attached peripherals connected to your computer. You cannot configure any aspect of these devices, but the page provides a tree view of the USB4 hubs and devices connected to the computer, along with attributes and capabilities associated with the USB4 domain. In addition, you can copy the details to the clipboard to share it with customer support or network administrator or perform online research. 

This guide will teach you the steps to find the USB 4.0 information for hubs and devices connected to your Windows 11 computer.
