I am wondering if it is possible to convert HDMI to USB.
My laptop does not have a USB-C port.

I have an HDMI cable coming from a monitor.  It plugs into an HDMI to USB-C converter.  Then I have a USB-C to USB adapter it plugs into.  Then I plug the USB connector into a USB port on my laptop.  But Windows 10 display settings will not detect this additional monitor.  

Is what I am trying to do possible with USB?

I know that using the other laptop that did have USB-C ports the HDMI to USB-C adapter works and the monitor displays just fine.

But converting that from USB-C to USB does not seem to work.
