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?

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

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
