I cant upload to my micro

i am trying to upload my code to my arduino micro for the first time and tried to plug it in, but when I look for the port, its not there, please help!

Which OS?
Does the USB cable work with other devices?

i havent tested

Install the board core via the IDE:

· Tools > Board > Boards Manager

· Search for "Arduino AVR Boards"

· From the drop-down menu select latest version

· Click "Install"

· Wait for installation to finish

· Click "Close" and restart your IDE.

. Plug your board back to the computer and select the board and port via tools.

See https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Cores

@Dozie, from your link:

The micro is an AVR board. Why do you advise to install the board?
