Enable USB Support in Virtualbox on Linux via Terminal

Linux is getting better and better everyday and I got to be honest with you I really am thinking of switching over to Linux completely! It will still take a bit of time for full acceptance of only Linux but until then I can always have Windows aside whenever I need it!
There are plenty of software that can run only on Windows and its crucial that I still have it, that's why I've installed it on Virtualbox but I also need to access files that I've saved on my USB from Picture Editing to Word Documents and so forth on my USB! 
Enabling USB Support to your Virtual Machine via Virtualbox is very important and its also necessary when its crucial times to open certain files on Windows and Windows related Programs! And its also convenient when you still want to install your USB connected printer as Well, even though Linux already covers most of them through generic drivers.
just open the Terminal and type sudo su and press Enter then it will ask for your password so type it out …
