Can i use my hp 21 all in one as a monitor? No video ports on the device

HP21 All in One (Model 21-2020)

We have an HP21 All in One (Model 21-2020). I would like to connect a laptop to it, and use it as a monitor.  There are only standard USB ports.  If I use a USB to HDMI adapter, can I use my HP21 as a monitor?  I also need the camera on the All in one to work in this mode for video conference.  Will it work, and any other set up instructions to get it to work?

@EWELCH Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you would like to know that the HP21 All in One (Model 21-2020) would like to connect the laptop as a monitor.


Unfortunately, It is not possible to connect the laptop as a monitor,


Because the All in one does not have a Video input option.
