What to do if the proxy is not working on Windows 10

If you are unable to connect to the proxy server, the first step is to ask your provider about the proxy. The IP address may be already blocked or expired term of use.

This may be since you are using public free proxies. They often slow down the network, overload traffic, or are already blacklisted by web resources.

Another option is a VPN or proxy in your browser. Such extensions can block the installation of a proxy on Windows, so go to the browser and disable all additional services.
