Welcome to TSDN!

The input file tag is the file upload tag. Why do you want to avoid using it?

Heya, Gorksha.

For security reasons, you may only use file inputs to upload files. The idea is that the User must know when and what he is uploading.

Can you imagine the anarchy that would result if websites could grab files from Users' hard drives at will?

;) that way you could build a 'file'-collector ... would be cool for google they could then build a new category: 'search users harddrive' -> 'which data of which user you are searching for?' -> and then call it web3.0 ;)

kind regards ...

If anyone would invade privacy online like that, they'd be the first to do it (and get away with it).
