cookie problem in new window when browsing using file explorer not internet explorer

We have a webpage, which pops up a new window, prompting logged-in user
to upload images. This works completely fine with regular internet
explorer because we use cookie to verify if users are logged in or not.

However, if somebody were browsing our website using windows' file
explorer, not internet explorer, they have no problem be recognized via
cookie when they browse to a regular page that needs loggin, but when
they try to upload a image in the new pop up window, they will be told
that they didn't login.

Does anybody have any idea?

I wonder how's that possible... :-?

Windows file explorer *is* Internet Explorer. I suppose you mean that your
login system does not work when you browse the PHP documents in your hard
disk rather than through a web server. That's normal, that way PHP is not
parsed, but it won't affect anyone but you.
