Steps to reproduce
My application is currently using ActiveX object to access/read a file on client machine using the physical path of the file. But this is not working in Microsoft Edge as it doesn’t allow/support ActiveX (a less secure technology).
I want an alternative to ActiveX object to access/read local file using path in Microsoft Edge.
If I could create a File Object (File API) using the physical file path then this can be achieved.
Please help me out.
