I want to send out a file path to other users.

How do I make the user name generic...

For example:

C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

P.S is "generic" the right expression?

What are trying to do? What do you mean mean by "Send out a file path"? How? What in? In a script? A .CMD file? A group policy?

No, not as a plain link in an email I dont think you will be able to.

On a local network file://server/share/folder/subfolder/file.ext should work. there may need to be more '/' chars preceding server

looking more closely at the question, I doubt that a browser will expand an environment variable

No, the file path is for a user local machine.
