"Browse" button missing for photo/file uploads

I am having a strange problem- whenever I am on a website, program ect. that requires me to upload a photo or file, the "browse" button is missing. (the browse button you click to view and choose files on your system)
How do I get the "browse" button back? It is seriously putting a damper on my computer business because I cannot upload photos onto my website. Please help if you can! Thank you!

It sounds like you have a sneaky piece of malware on your system that is hiding this needed button.

First, download the Windows Defender software. Install it on your computer and then restart it your computer in Safe Mode.

You then need to scan your computer with Windows Defender. I recommend you choose "Full Scan". Once the scan is finished, quarantine all of the items.

Once that's done, I strongly recommend you change to a faster, better and more secure web browser such as Mozilla Firefox.
