Google Chrome: How to Assign a Proxy Server that is Different from Internet Explorer’s Settings

By default, Google Chrome will use the proxy settings that Internet Explorer uses. If you wish to use a different proxy server (or disable the proxy completely) you need to append a switch to your application shortcut.

1. Go to the shortcut you use to open Google Chrome.

2. Right-click the shortcut and select Properties.

3. To use a different proxy server, go to the Target text box. Go to the end of the text, add a space and input the following:
--proxy-server="ipaddress:port"
Where ipaddress is the address of the desired proxy server and port is the desired port. For example –proxy-server=”192.168.1.5:8080″. Make sure to include the quotes.

To disable the proxy settings, go to the Target textbook. Go to the end of the text, add a space and input the following:
--no-proxy-server="

4. Click OK.
