Fix unable to connect to the proxy server in Windows 10: A proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary between your computer and other servers. Right now, your system is configured to use a proxy, but Google Chrome can’t connect to it.
Here are some suggestions: If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working. If you don’t believe you should be using a proxy server, adjust your proxy settings: Go to the Chrome menu – Settings – Show advanced settings… – Change proxy settings… – LAN Settings and deselect the “Use a proxy server for your LAN” checkbox.
