You can use webkitdirectory for this. Please see an example here

It will give file names in the directory.

but we want directory name

Ex : If i select C://me.
it's gonna print C://me in console.

it's giving all files inside C://me.

Web applications have extremely limited access[^] to the local filesystem, and with good reason. Would you really want every random website you visited being able to access random locations on your computer's hard-drive?

You can get access to a restricted part of the filesystem; or you can get the user to select one or more files to upload. But you cannot get the actual path of those files, and you cannot get the path of a directory on their computer.

And if you think about it, even if you could, it wouldn't do you any good. A path on my computer won't make any sense to code running on your computer. So unless both the server and the client are part of the same internal network, and you could somehow restrict the selection to UNC paths on that network, there's no benefit to your code to know the path/name of the directory selected by the user.
