Scheduled refresh for local Excel file with on-premise gateway

Hello,

I have created a Power BI dashboard, and my dataset is an Excel file which is located on my personal computer.
Is it possible to do a scheduled refresh for this?
I have tried, but when I try to add a dataset in my gateway, I have an error message, concerning windows id and password... how can I know the Windows id and password of my computer?
Thanks a lot,
