In this tutorial I will show you how to set you Google Chrome browser to use a proxy server. The tutorial is very basic and will guide you in four simple steps how to set the proxy. The operating system used is Windows XP and we have installed 4.0.249.78 version of Google Chrome browser.

The prerequisites for this tutorial are:

1. Windows XP
2. google chrome installed and functional
3. that you have the proxy settings and confirmed them working

Step 1:
Start Google Chrome browser and go the "Customize and control Google Chrome" menu. Click on Options

A new window will pop up and you will land on the last tab you have managed.

Step 2:
Go on "Under the Hood" tab in case you are not already there. Under Network section click on Change proxy Settings button.

Step 3:

You will be directed to the Internet Options window.
Note: From here you will make pretty much every application that is integrated with the environment to use this proxy settings for internet connection. In one way it eases the configuration but I have personally always proffered such control to be on per-application level.

On the screen you must click on "LAN settings" button.

Step 4:

On the next window that will open check on the box at the bottom. It should say "Use a proxy server for your LAN(These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections)"

The settings will be saved after you confirm all the windows by clicking OK button. After that they will become active immediately. If the proxy requires user and password to be used you will be prompted on the next page reload.

    I have followed the instructions on this page explicitly but when I click on change proxy settings nothing happens. Under system tools/system information 2 of the lines mention proxy and they are both disabled. This is why I looked and found this page. Also, when I try to go into internet options under the control panel it will not open. Could you please advise me as to what I am doing wrong or if you have any suggestions that you may have. thank you

    Hey how do you make the actual proxy and the port. and does this allow you to go onto any website even on servers that block it?!?! Please answer back.

    • Error: Unable to create directory /var/www/vhosts/onlinehowto.net/web/www/wp-content/uploads/2014/11. Is its parent directory writable by the server? Stefan Batanov says:

      you google the proxy and the port
