The following should work with any VPN
provider that supports open VPN,
most of them do. These instructions assume
you are using the windows

3. Make sure the show script window is
unchecked and silent connection

4. Download your preferred open VPN server
files from your provider.
With express VPN, it was as simple as
clicking on the area of the world
then downloading and saving the relevant
file for the country of choice.
5. Rename the files to names that are easy
to remember. For example,
london1, france1, etc. remember if you use
upper case or lower case, for
convenience I make all file names lower
case without any spaces.
6. Right click the open VPN client in the
system tray and click exit.
Then press windows R and copy and paste the
following to get to the
folder for the config files.
Press enter. There is a readme file in the
folder, ignore it.
7. Copy and paste all of the VPN files you
downloaded earlier in to this
folder. If prompted to continue with admin
rights, click continue all
8. Close the program files folder. Now we
need to make the shortcuts on
the desktop. Go to your desktop and press
control space until NVDA says
Press applications, then W for new and go
down to shortcut. Press enter
on shortcut and paste the following,
replacing the part at the end with
the name of your config file.
Files\OpenVPN\bin\openvpn-gui.exe" --connect london1.ovpn
9. Press enter and type a name for your
shortcut. Press enter when done.
10. Go in to notepad and paste the
following, making sure that both
items starting with taskkill are on a new
taskkill /F /IM openvpn.exe
taskkill /F /IM openvpn-gui.exe

save the file, call it VPN
disconnect. Tab to the save as type box and
arrow down to all files.
Then shift tab back to the file name box
and put .bat at the end of your
file name. so it looks like VPN
disconnect.bat then press enter. Make
sure the file name does not have .txt in
12. Finally, make sure all files are on
your desktop and press enter on
London or whatever country you created the
shortcut to. The first time
you connect to a VPN, you will be prompted
for a username and password.
If you tab to save password and check it,
you will not be prompted next
time. enter your details and press enter.
You should now be connected to
your server of choice. Remember to press
enter on VPN disconnect to kill
the VPN connection so you can connect to
I hope this helps.
