Reading from a file outside the sandbox (windows)

I have an editor ( not made in GMS ), it outputs a .txt file with level data. While my GMS2 game is under development I need to read this .txt file (it changes often). I have read-up on "get_open_filename()" OmegleAppvalley and tested it out, but I cannot get it to read a file I have on the desktop, keep getting an error "Error! not allowing save with filename 'C:\Users\Supertino\Documents\tp_stages.txt'.0;"
