Input HTML tag – how to enable checkbox while selecting file in OS file picker?

  html, javascript, windows

A feature allows user to select multiple files using HTML input field. "Checkbox" appears for multiple file selection in OS based file picker. This is controlled through setting in Windows (as in snapshot File Browser -> Options -> View -> Use Check boxes to select items). This setting is not enabled for all users by-default. We want to enable it while showing user a File-Picker created through input HTML tag. Is there a way to control/enable this setting through HTML tag configuration or through Javascript while user is selecting files?
