I have an external monitor connected to my laptop. However, when I plug in my headphones, keyboard, mouse, etc to the ports on the monitor, it does not work. Instead, I need to plug them into my laptop, which is very annoying when trying to manage my cables. Please help.

More information needed:

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS.

Also include the applicable peripheral makes and models information.

What connectivity is being used (HDMI, USB, etc. between connected peripherals)?
