Since Chrome does not support ActiveX, there is no native function for opening it from Visual Basic Applications. However, there are workarounds, one of them being to use this line of code:

shell("C:UsersUSERNAMEAppDataLocalGoogleChromeApplicationChrome.exe -url http:google.ca")

Another way is to use this code:

Sub test544()

Dim chromePath As String

chromePath = “””C:Program FilesGoogleChromeApplicationchrome.exe”””

Shell (chromePath & ” -url http:google.ca”)

End Sub
