How to open a local file on startup of the live editor

Is it possible to add a parameter to the live editor URL to open a local file on startup similar to the #file= parameter for remote files? #file=C:\file.graphmlz for example does not work.

Unfortunately, this is not possible due to browser security restrictions. Browsers cannot access the local file system.

This is also the reason, why the file input dialog is opened, when you try to open a "Local file" in the "Recently Opened" panel.
