Guide to Setting a Proxy in Edge Browser

The guide focuses on Oxylabs Residential and Datacenter Proxies while providing a step-by-step integration tutorial. 

Note, if you’re still using Internet Explorer, we highly recommend switching to Microsoft Edge as Internet Explorer 11 support ended on June 15, 2022.

Guide to Setting a Proxy in Edge Browser

Setting up Edge proxy servers

To start the integration:

  1. Launch Microsoft Edge.

  2. Click on the three dots in the top right corner.

3. Then, click Settings.

4. You’ll be presented with your profile and many other configuration options. Within the search bar, write “proxy”.

5. Afterwards, click Open your computer’s proxy settings.

Step 5 will redirect you to Windows proxy settings; therefore, please follow this Windows proxy setup guide for further integration steps.

How to disable proxy settings in Microsoft Edge

The simplest way to disable Edge proxy server settings is through command-line options. You merely need to type --no-proxy-server, which will tell Microsoft Edge not to use a proxy server. Do note that this command overrides any other provided proxy settings. For more information, see Microsoft’s own tips here.

Setting a proxy in Internet Explorer

The no longer supported Microsoft’s legacy browser, Internet Explorer, is surprisingly still somewhat relevant, especially in organizational networks that haven’t yet updated their systems.

It’s highly recommended to switch to Edge as Internet Explorer was permanently disabled in February, 2023. Note that there is an Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge to sustain legacy settings. And yet, if you’re still using Internet Explorer and want more privacy and security provided by proxies, you can still follow the same workflow.

The workflow applies to Internet Explorer 9, 10, 11, and other versions as the browser redirects the user to Windows proxy settings. Beware that these settings will apply system-wide, not just to Internet Explorer alone.

1. Navigate to settings (⚙️) > Internet options.

2. As Internet Explorer redirects you to Windows internet options, continue from the second step of the Configuring proxies using the legacy Windows settings section in the Windows proxy setup tutorial.


You can use Microsoft Edge to reach your system settings where a more in-depth setup can be continued.
