Usage: hashcat [options]... hash|hashfile|hccapfile [dictionary|mask|directory]...

i need help it says this every time I try to normally open hashcat in kali Linux I think it's thinking I'm going to finish the command but I'm just trying to open it normally any help.

You don't really open hashcat, you just run it. The behavior your describing sounds normal. Also, this is 5 years old and was just a reference to the help menu, you should probably just run "hashcat --help" for the latest, and watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfqJCKWtGiU
