I would like to ask you if there is any way to run html file as a program to for example have possibility to edit that file in hisself and save it as the same file in the same location.

What I have tried:

Locally created and runned html file "is thinking" that he is running on "some" server... but maybe there is any way to force the system (Windows 10) to run it as a local application with typical local application priviligies (without changing general sercurity options in web browser)?

"Something" has to run it; in this case, it's still a browser.

You can run it locally through IIS.

Take a look at one of these: cross-platform-tools[^]
WebWindow or CefSharp might be what you are looking for.

Another option might be to use TiddlyWiki, see: cross-platform-productivity-tools[^]

And yet another option might be to create a PWA (Progressive Web Application), see: pwa-framework[^] and: Build a Basic PWA With Html and Javascript for Beginners[^]
