Proxies can provide many advantages to networks, including additional security and bandwidth savings. You can set them up in your home if you’re experiencing slow connections. Windows 10’s Settings app and Control Panel are where you can manage proxy settings. If you’re using a proxy for school or work, make sure network proxy settings Windows 10 that the Automatic detection settings and Use setup script switches are 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 the LAN settings. Enter your proxy provider data in the Address and Port fields. Then, select the box that says Use a proxy server for your LAN, and close the Internet Options window.
Malware can cause problems with your proxy settings on your network and block you from getting online. If the error “Windows could not detect automatically the proxy settings for this network” persists, run a scan with an anti-malware application and see if it helps.
If the problem persists, you can try resetting the proxy settings in the Registry. However, be careful as modifying the Registry can cause irreversible damage to your system. We recommend making backups before proceeding with this method. To do this do this, press the Win + R keys at the same time. Enter cmd and press Enter. This will launch the traditional Command Prompt.
