The name shown in the connections panel. When the TAP adapter is installed a 
name is picked by Windows, something like "LAN Connection 3", but I usually 
rename it to "OpenVPN".

For fun, you might want to try

  netsh interface set interface name = "Your Name Here" newname = "OpenVPN"

which does the same thing.

Hope this helps,
