They are operating system functions and not web page functions. Since most web browsers can run on multiple operating systems and don't allow the web page to interface much with the browser and not at all with the operating system this can't be done in those browsers.

The sole exception is Internet Explorer which now only runs on Windows and which provides access to the browser and operating system for when it is being used on intranets. When it is being used on the internet the security settings of the system should block that functionality if the security is set up correctly.
