Proxies offer a variety of advantages for networks, such as additional security and bandwidth savings. You can set them up in your home if you are experiencing a slow connection speed. You can configure proxy settings in Windows 10 through the Settings app or Control Panel. If you use a proxy to school or work, 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.
To modify your settings manually, open the Internet Options window in the Control Panel or by searching for “Internet options” in the Search bar. Open the LAN settings by clicking the Advanced tab. Enter the details of your proxy provider in the Address and Port fields. Then, tick the box that says Use a proxy server for your LAN. Close the Internet Options window.
Sometimes, malware could mess with your proxy settings for your network to prevent you from getting online. If the error message “Windows cannot automatically detect this network’s proxy settings” persists you should run a scan using an anti-malware software and see if that helps.
If the error continues, you can try resetting the proxy settings through the Registry. Be cautious, as altering the Registry can cause irreparable system damage. We recommend making an initial backup before you begin this method. To do this do this, press the Win + R keys simultaneously. Enter cmd, then press Enter. This will open the classic Command Prompt.
