How to connect a USB to PC via Samsung M7 monitor

Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to connect a USB mouse and keyboard to a PC using the Samsung M7s USB 2.0 ports in the back. My M7 monitor is quite far from my PC so this is the best option, Bluetooth is a little laggy so I was thinking of plugging the Bluetooth devices into the monitor so it was closer range. I have an extension USB 2.0 cable but I wasn't able to figure out if it can connect to the PC to access those 2.0s in the back. Thanks in advance for the help.

The USB ports on this monitor are not configures as a hub. Connecting a keyboard and/or mouse will allow control of the internal internet and Smart Hub functions only, not a connected PC.

Hi,

 

I know it says it doesn't act as a hub but when I connect my laptop to the monitor using usb-c to usb-c cable (need to make sure cable supports video and data), I can use the usb-A connection (on 2 of the 3 though) to connect my keyboard and mouse to my laptop.

Do you know if I can connect the laptop (mac) via usbc and use the usba ports to connect to hard drives?
