There is no proxy option in edge. Click proxy settings to jump directly to PC system settings.

So I don't think it's useful to set up a GPO for edge

Is there any other way to set proxy in edge

Edge, just like Chrome and other Chromium based browser, uses system proxy.
so there is proxy settings, it's just in Windows.

So is it invalid to set edge proxy through GPO?

The only policy for Edge browser that I see that's not depreciated is this:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/microsoft-edge-policies#proxysettings


p.s I suggested this before
https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/add-socks5-authentication-support-to-edge-insider...
to have a separate proxy setting only for Edge, like Firefox. It didn't get much attention, but if you like it, it will help if you send request as feedback from Edge browser

@HotCakeX 

Therefore, the edge group policy proxy settings in the figure below are actually used for the entire operating system, right?

@icey_wu 

all of them are depreciated and shouldn't be used, except for 1. you can see in the picture

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/microsoft-edge-policies#proxysettings

in ProxySettings there is a part where it explains how to override system proxy settings with command line

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/DeployEdge/edge-learnmore-cmdline-options-proxy-settings

 

System network settings

The Microsoft Edge network stack uses the system network settings by default. These settings include proxy settings, and certificate and private key stores.

There are scenarios where users request an alternative to using the system's default proxy settings. To support these scenarios, Microsoft Edge supports command-line options that you can use to configure custom proxy settings.

 

 

 

@HotCakeX 

 

Yes, I see. They have been abandoned.

 

At present, I only configure the group policy of proxysetting. I want to know whether this group policy will be effective for edge alone or for the entire operating system?

 

In addition, with regard to configuring the agent from the command line, I would like to know whether it will work only for edge or for the entire operating system?

@icey_wu 

Other depreciated policies, based on their description, only apply to Edge.

 

command line only applies to Edge of course, there is no way to apply it to the entire OS...

you know where the command line is, right?

 

right-click on Edge icon on desktop and choose properties

in the target area, add the commands at the end

for example:

 

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe" --proxy-server="proxy2:8080"

@HotCakeX 

OK, I'll do some tests.

 

Now, there are only two ways to set the proxy settings that only work for edge?

1. Use the command line

2. Use Socks5

 

If  i want to promote the command line in the organization, how to operate?

No, just command line.
use it to set http,https,socks4,socks5 etc.
https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/HEAD/net/docs/proxy.md#proxy-server-schemes

use Microsoft SCCM, Intune, to distribute that Edge shortcut to your clients

https://byteben.com/bb/deploy-windows-10-desktop-shortcuts-and-icons-with-sccm-configuration-baselin...


or even maybe group policy
https://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/windowsserver/en-US/65f67962-582a-4af1-854d-8fd5e8888a04...

managing clients is out of the scope of this topic (because not related to Edge, but a Windows server/client topic), you need to contact your administrator or IT person, they should know how to do this.

@HotCakeX can u suggest how i can push System proxy then which could be use by MS Edge ?currently i did with IE Proxy setting in GPO, but once i uninstalled IE internet will not work in edge . pls guide

You do need Internet Explorer to be installed in order to use IE mode in Edge.
