I connect the M24fd monitor to my computer via a HDMI cable and the monitor works fine.
1. Can I use the monitor's USB port to charge my Pixel 5 smart phone which uses a USB-C cable?

Yes, the USB-C port can charge but with limits quoting from the manual:
Connects a USB Type-C cable to a source
device such as a computer or game console. This
USB Type-C port can function as a DisplayPort
audio/video input or as a USB 3.0 connection. It
can also be used to deliver up to 65 W of power to
a device. Power outputs are 9 V/10 V/12 V/15 V/20
V to achieve a 65 W output.
This port also enables the USB Type-A ports to
perform their functions.
Not sure if it is Qi (apple) certified but can do 65 watts. I suspect if you put additional device on the other USB ports the 65 watt USBc might need to be depreciated. That last sentence about "performing functions" seems suspicious.
USB powered hubs are cheap. It might be safer to obtain a powered hub that have one or two charging ports.

I tried connecting the monitor's USB-C port to my Pixel 5 smartphone and the phone does not charge.
From re-reading the User Guide, it seems that the monitor's USB-C port is only used to distribute a computer's USB network to the monitor's two (2) USB Type A ports.. Not exactly what I want to do.
Anyway, thanks for your help.

I agree with you in that the USB-C port should charge my Pixel 5 phone. The Pixel 5 can charge at:18W wired, PD2.0 or 12W wireless or 5W reverse wired. However, when I connect connect my Pixel 5 phone to the monitor's USB-C port, using either the cable supplied by HP or the phone cable, the phone does not charge.
Do you think I need a different USB C cable"
Do you think I have a defective monitor?.
Is there anyone specific at HP that I should direct this isssue to, since the monitor is only a week old?
Thanks for your help.
