Windows 10 - Disable Proxy Toggle Switch ON\OFF Found in : Settings > Networking > Proxy


  • Having disabled connection tab in ie settings via group policy so users can not fiddle with Proxy settings. We have found that users can turn proxy slider ON or OFF in in : Settings > Networking > Proxy. How can we disable this, so they can not turn proxy on\off??

  • Hello Hifz Shaikh,

    What you can use is the same policy "Prevent changing proxy settings" located in the path:
    User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer

    When you enable the policy you will prevent that users can change the Proxy configuration, even when you can move the switch between ON\OFF on the General settings:  Settings > Networking > Proxy. By applying this policy you cannot save the changes made so you cannot change the proxy.

    I hope this information help you to reach your goal. :D
