You can't. That's deliberate and very, very unlikely to change. It was possible for a very short period on some systems, but ActiveX was effectively banned by all browsers simply because it allowed things like that!

Think about it for a moment: if you could do it from your site, who else could do it? What ransomware would you pick up just by visiting a "safe looking" site?

No. Not going to happen

thanks but i use intralaunch(chrome extension) for implementing its works fine but they want without using any extension.
Assuming your intentions are not malicious, the main way to accomplish this in a legitimate manner is via custom URI protocol.

By design, you can't without user consent. It is a security feature.
To load a file to local storage, you have to ask the user, and you have no way to force a particular destination or execution, both are user choice.
The feature you want is a dream for any malware.
