In order to set this method up you will need to set the log filtered to USB option in config.ini to T and also install the driver for the Micro USB to act as a COM port. You can only stream Filtered data via this method.

The USB driver is native to windows 10 and will self install. For Windows 8 and 8.1 64-bit machines you will have to disable the digital driver reinforcement prior to installing the USB driver. Windows 7 already has digital driver reinforcement disabled. For Earlier versions of Windows please refer to Google.
