chrome from Excel VBA


i just want   my chrome browser to go to a specfic website.  I understand chrome doesn't recognize the parameters to put in user and password.  that is ok . but I would like the vba to be non specfic to a user. I tried using ENVIRON,

this works:

what do I need to add so that it is not user desktop specific

Sub My_Website()


Dim chromePath As String
Dim WebURL As String
 CreateObject("WScript.Shell").Run chrome & " " & param, 0, False

Shell ("C:\Users\nameed\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\Chrome.exe -url")

End Sub
