using DESKTOP-CMP8AOC as a monitor to split screen from work laptop. there is no HDMI button

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

how do I get HP 27 desktop DESKTOP-CMP8AOC, to become a monitor using HDMI cable for laptop. (required by work to use the laptop).

From the other threads I have read it should automatically detect, but this does not happen. also there is no HDMI selection button as I have seen on other threads.

this is a recorded response (macro))
we need the exact model of your computer, and the product number
To find it follow this
for a desktop computer

and for a laptop:

HP Notebook PCs - How Do I Find My Product Name or Number? | HP® Customer Support

There are many possibilities
the computer has an HDMI output and / or input
Or just an HDMI output!
If this does not generally work, it is because the computer has just an HDMI output not an input
