If you have a ready file, you just need to relocate it to the “cfg” folder in the game catalog. For the changes to take place, you need to launch the game, then open console and enter the following: exec “the name of your configuration file”.cfg.
If you don’t want to repeat these actions every time you launch the game, go to your Steam library, right-click on the CS:GO icon and choose “Settings.” After that go to the launch parameters tab and type the following command: -console -exec “name of your config file”.cfg. After confirming the changes, you will be able to play with the new configuration without constantly reentering it in the gaming console itself.
