Monitor Gigabyte M28U and having some difficulty understanding the inbuilt KVM function.

Any help would be appreciated.

Devices.
1.Laptop
2.Desktop
3.Monitor


This is how the wires are connected:
1.Mouse and keyboard connected to monitor
2.DisplayPort from monitor to GPU(desktop) connected
3.HDMI from laptop to monitor connected
4. USB to type B connected to laptop from monitor


The monitor comes with a quick KVM switch but when clicked switched to the laptop display and couldn't be switched back to the desktop display (LOL). The video you see now is my laptop display, I tried going into the KVM options and switching the input source but it just wouldn't work. The monitor would black out and go back to HDMI 2 (laptop) source.

Is what I am lacking a USB C to DP cable? Because at the 19secs mark the monitor is asking what I assume the second source?

Thanks alot!
