    The cable type depends on what switch you are using. 

    6200F/6300M need USB-C cables. Depending on your computer (Windows 10), you might use a USB-a to USB-c cable, or a USB-c to USB-c cable.

    Other switches (8325) have micro-USB ports.  The process is the same but the cable is different. 

    On your laptop or windows device:
    Open device manager. Find the section with ports - com and lpt and hit the plus to expand it. Notice what ports are already present. 

    Plug in the cable to the switch and the computer.  Windows will install the driver and add a port. Notice the new port in the list. 

    Now open a terminal program- (like putty) and set it to serial and enter the number of the com port and the speed 115200 
    You should get the terminal after pressing enter a couple times. 

    Hope this helps.
