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

The only policy for Edge browser that I see that's not depreciated is this:
p.s I suggested this before
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

all of them are depreciated and shouldn't be used, except for 1. you can see in the picture
in ProxySettings there is a part where it explains how to override system proxy settings with command line
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.

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?

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

No, just command line.
use it to set http,https,socks4,socks5 etc.
use Microsoft SCCM, Intune, to distribute that Edge shortcut to your clients
or even maybe group policy
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.
