This is a browser security restriction, in modern browsers you cannot get the full client file-system path of the selected file, nor set a path programmatically...

Answer

Maybe for security reason, javascript doesn't allow this to happen. And if you come to think of it, Server side pages cannot access your local files. Not that I have a solution for your question.

Answer

Actually, there is some kind of solution.
Albeit, it will help only if you can run Electron desktop app on local machine: https://stackoverflow.com/a/59990858/9390914
