However, to enter the special settings every time you open the game is quite annoying no one would like it. Typing or even pasting codes, every time you open the game will increase your annoyance even before you start playing a competitive game, and if you got a toxic teammate you will certainly lose your temper. So in order to keep your sanity intact, there is the Autoexec config option in the console.

What is an Autoexec in CS GO?

An Autoexec (auto-execute) is a personal configuration file that a player puts in the game’s files, that has the player’s own settings. It contains settings like crosshair re-sizing, buy binds, CS GO keybinds, sensitivity, etc. This implements these settings automatically while executing. This will prevent you from fetching the personal settings each time you open the game. Isn’t it cool to have all your personalized settings load up at once?
