Each browser has a settings page to adjust proxy settings, but they normally just link to the settings dialog in Windows itself.
In Windows 10, there are two ways to go about changing the settings: via the Settings app or via the traditional Control Panel. Click on Start and then click on the gear icon Settings at the far left. Here you have all the settings that are related to setting up a proxy in Windows.
If anything is turned on, your web traffic could be going through a proxy. Note that whichever way you choose to edit the settings, there are only one set of proxy settings in Windows. In the Internet Options dialog, go ahead and click on the Connections tab and then click on LAN settings at the bottom.
Here you will see all the same settings as in the Settings app shown above. Anything you configure here will show up there and vice versa.
If you are using a Mac with OS X, then the procedure is similar. You have to change the proxy settings in System Preferences as this is where most browsers check automatically. Open System Preferences and click on Network.
How To Check the Proxy Server Settings on Your Computer
On the left-hand side, make sure to select the connected or active network connection. You can have different proxy settings for each type of network connection. At the bottom, click on the Advanced button. Click the checkboxes beside the protocols that you want to configure. Click the protocol names to configure each proxy. Setup fields appear to the right of the protocol list. Enter the proxy information as provided by your network administrator.
Click OK to exit advanced setup. Click Apply to activate and begin using your new network settings. Get information, documentation, videos and more for your specific product.
