I don't believe it is possible. Security setups don't allow website to control that kind of information. Especially considering that some users won't have a My Documents folder! Then where the file go?

No because not all filesystems are the same, and there is no guarantee the user data will be in a standard, static, or even local location anyway.

Each user specifies this in the browser.
