Developed from Google's Chromium project, the Chrome browser is one of the best browsers available today. The ability to work across multiple platforms, including Mac OS, Windows, Android, Linux, and Google's own Chrome OS, makes Google Chrome browser the most popular web browser.

When it comes to proxies, by default, the Google Chrome browser copies and uses your operating systems proxy settings. In other words, Chrome doesn't have or need any particular configuration or additional settings to work. You can, however, use Google Chrome to set the proxy configuration of your computer.

Setting Up a Proxy in Your Google Chrome Browser For Windows 10

1.Open your Chrome browser. Access the browser settings by clicking on the three dots on the top right-hand corner of your browser window.

2.From the drop-down menu, click on Settings.

3.On the left of your browser window with the settings shortcuts, click on Advanced. In the drop-down menu that opens, click on System.

4.In the system menu, select Open your computer's proxy settings.

5.This opens the proxy settings on the Network & Internet settings page of your Windows 10. You can opt for the Automatic proxy setup, where the system automatically detects proxy settings. If you wanted to configure your settings using a script automatically, turn on the setup script option. Insert the script address in the box, press Save, and you're good to go.

6.If you opt to configure your proxy manually, go to the Manual proxy setup and turn on the Use a proxy server option. Next, enter the proxy IP address and port number and click save. If you have web addresses that you want to access directly, insert them in the "Use the proxy server except for…" box, and remember to check the "Don't use the proxy server for local addresses" box if you have a local webserver. This allows you direct access to your local web server without having to go through the proxy.

7.The first time you try to open a webpage, a prompt will ask you to input both your Proxie username and password, and log into your proxy user account.

Once you finish these steps, you will have successfully set up your proxy in the Google Chrome browser.
