Can I get infected by just opening a malware file/link?

I know this is gonna sound like the dumbest question in the world, but is it possible to still get infected by malware by just opening it and not giving it any permissions? I recently opened a random file on accident (well not really, I was trying to see what the file was) and it asked me for permissions, but I didn’t give it any. Then I researched the file and found that it was a piece of malware. I’ve been freaking out all day over this and reset my entire laptop. Will my laptop be fine?

(I don’t remember the exact name of the file, but it had “Fp_Player” and “Lilly” in it, I believe.”
