    Hi, everyone:

    I have a little Windows 10 tablet that has only one USB port. I tried connecting a USB hub with 7 ports. This is a powered USB hub. It doesn't work. If I connect it to my laptop, it does. I've also tried an unpowered USB hub with the same result. Any thoughts?

    It might be that not enough power is being provided to the hub from the tablet. Try a different cable if you can and see if it works on the tablet.

    Even if it's a powered hub connected to an AC outlet?

    Sorry, I don't think I have another cable to try.

    yeah, I am agree with it.
    I have had this issue on other devices that only have one USB part and changing the cable usually solves it but it has to be a good quality cable.

    Is the hub USB OTG capable? Remember, pre-USB-C small tablets and the like tend to need a USB OTG hub or adapter to act as a host.
