.ovpn file keeps opening as text file Kali

Hi, I'm at the starting point trying to launch the OpenVPN file that i've download. to open the ovpn file, I'm dragging the file into cli and launching hitting enter.
this worked the first time I did this on my other PC and it worked fine. on this PC running Kali, the file just keeps opening as a text file when I try the above. can anyone tell me how to resolve this or tell me the file association type i need to run the file?

  • Opening file as a text document? it means you run the file with just the name and without specifying a software to run it with, try :
    openvpn yourfile.ovpn

  • Legend, I must have done this first time but forgot or didn't know I did it.
