How to Configure Network Proxy Settings in Windows 10

Proxies offer a variety of benefits to your network, such as extra security and bandwidth savings. They are widely used in corporate and school settings, but you can also set them up at home if you find your connection speed is slowing. You can set proxy settings in Windows 10 through the Settings app or Control Panel. If you use the proxy for work or school, make sure that the Use automatic detection of settings is turned on and the Use setup script option is On under the Automatic Proxy Setup section.

Open the Internet Options window by clicking on the Control Panel icon or by typing “Internet options” into the Search bar. Click the Advanced tab and then open the LAN settings within it. Enter the information for your proxy provider in the Address and Port fields. Then, check the box that says Use a proxy server on your LAN and close the Internet Options window.

Sometimes, malware can mess with your network proxy settings to prevent you from being online. If the error “Windows could not detect this network’s proxy settings” persists you should run a scan using an anti-malware program to determine if this helps.

If the error continues If the error persists, you can try resetting the proxy settings through the Registry. Be careful, as modifying the Registry can cause irreparable system damage. Before attempting this method, we suggest making a backup. To do this, press the Win + R keys simultaneously. Enter cmd and hit Enter. This will launch classic Command Prompt.
