How do I save variables to a local file?

Get help using Construct 2

Hey everyone,

I'm very very new to this and I'm making a very simple game to collect some results from people. I've thoroughly enjoyed designing it on this platform and it's been fun learning it! At the end of a round, a player presses 'submit' and that is when I want to store the information.

The experiment gives me 4 pieces of information I wanna store are 4 integer values (0-2,0-31,0-31, 0-31) and an array of size 5 that can take integer values between 0-2. Ideally, it would be great to store it in a text file as follows:
0 1 0 2 1 0

for each round played. However, other data formats can be fine really as I can handle them another time.

How could I locally add the information to a file (not create one but just add to what's already there)?

I hope this isn't too badly posed since I've been rushing to learn Construct within a night, haha!

Thank you!

You don't. That would be a violation of security in JavaScript. How would you like it if any website that you visited could save files on your computer?
I don't check the forums much anymore, but I will receive an email for PMs.
