opening a program via web browser

hey guys

 

I'm doing a little mini project atm where im building a website and im trying to get it to open a program installed on the machine but I cannot find anywhere online that tells me how.

For example I want to click a button on a webpage and it to open a program on my machine. is that possible?

In writing in html

 

Due to the security limits set on the majority of modern browsers, it is going to have to ask the user first for permission to open the local program, although it definitely is possible.
