Code:
Shell "C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe %userprofile%\Downloads", vbNormalFocus
This isn't working for me either (while the same command at the run prompt does work: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe %userprofile%\Downloads)

I suggest you use the other method shown above. Or a temp folder instead of the downloads folder if that would fit. Or possibly the public downloads folder (not sure what your end goal is so these are just some other possibilities)

You're welcome. I learned something in the process. Like many other things I manage to help with, it's probably not something I'll remember if I ever need it!
