Is there a full-size USB port on the Microsoft Surface Go?
No, it doesn’t! There is no full-size USB (USB-A) port available on any generation and model of Surface Go. I think it’s reasonable to omit a full-size USB port on slim and lightweight tablets like the Surface Go, which is only 8.3 mm thick.

USB ports over a USB-C Hub
The Surface Go has a USB-C 3.1 port that can transfer data at speeds of up to 5Gbps. You can use a USB-C adapter or hub with a full-size USB (USB-A) port to connect USB peripherals such as external hard drives, flash drives, printers, and more.

Microsoft offers a range of adapters and docking stations that are compatible with all generations of Surface Go.
