I have a HP COMPAQ 8300 SFF Intel Core i5-3470 @ 3.20 GHZ 8GB RAM Win 10
It has 10 USB ports 4 front 6 rear, I have just learnt the ports are 4x USB 3.00 + 6 USB 2.00 wich is which I don’t know they all look the same to me.
It's said to be easy when you know how. If you don't know how, then you need the help of forumites.

Often the USB 3.0 ones are blue instead of white.00October 21, 2019 at 8:18 pm #37639ParticipantWheels-Of-Fire@grahamdearsleyForumite Points: 5,252
I also have yellow ports that are for power off or sleep charging, on my PC they are USB 2 and also high power. Have a look at the above link for some more options (you have to scroll down a bit)00October 21, 2019 at 8:41 pm #37641ParticipantEd P@edpsForumite Points: 13,902
A red port either means it is a power only port, or it is a port set aside for bios updates. Sometimes a different colour is used for this latter, mine is white, while usb2 ports are grey. Blue for usb3 seems to be the only consistent colour scheme I’ve seen.
