USBView is a lightweight and portable tool that allows you to find out technical details regarding all USB flash drives that are currently connected to the computer.
The executable file can simply be dropped on any place of the hard drive, in order to directly run it. Alternatively, you can store it on a USB flash drive or similar storage unit and run it on any computer.
More importantly, the Windows Registry does not receive new updates, and no files are left behind on the hard drive after program removal. Plus, you can carry USBView in your pocket whenever you're on the move.
The interface of the program is represented by a standard window with an uncomplicated layout. The configuration descriptors and location IDs for each USB flash drive are automatically displayed upon app initialization.
So, you can find out the device address and bus speed, connection status, current configuration value, open pipes along with the endpoint and interface descriptors, just to name a few. The status bar shows all connected hubs and devices. It is possible to disable automatic refresh and to hide the configuration descriptors or location IDs, from the Options menu.
The straightforward program has a good response time, quickly refreshes the list and runs on a very low amount of CPU and system memory, so it does not interfere with the runtime of other currently active processes. We have not come across any problems throughout our testing; USBView did not hang, crash or display error notifications. But the app has not been updated for a very long time. Thanks to its intuitive layout, USBView can be used by individuals of all skill levels.
