I am having a static php page with a simple input type file, for file upload.

If I open in internet explorer, if I click on it, it opens "open file dialog", but it doesn't show any files in that.

whereas if I open http://localhost/mypage.php in internet explorer and click on it, then it opens "open file dialog" and it shows files for selection.

In other browsers, both ways are working fine.

Any idea ? Please help.
