I guess you mean "/ssh:myuser@myremote:", with the trailing colon.

I cannot reproduce it. I've opened "/ssh:albinus@ubuntu-2204:". When I
call 'M-x shell', Emacs offers me in the minibuffer

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

which is fine. What Emacs and Tramp versions are you using? I've
performed my tests with Emacs 30.0.50 and Tramp 2.1.7-pre.

Could you try to reproduce the problem after starting "emacs -Q"?

When the user is given in ~/.ssh/config, you don't need to specify
it. Just open "/ssh:myremote:".

Set explicit-shell-file-name to a proper value.
