we dont want our users to tamper around with our IE settings.

how can i configure IE settings through GPO so that for users its not possible to change proxy settings? we have a proxy pac which shall be imported and not altered anymore once its done.

You can directly lock down the changing of group policy settings by doing the following.

Within group policy management editor.

User config> admin templates > windows components/internet explorer> disable changing proxy settings .

User config> admin templates > windows components/internet explorer> Disable changing automatic config settings.



Enable both of those and the settings arent able to be changed.

I would also suggest putting in the pac file into the same group policy while youre setting the lockdown.

This is accessable here:

user config> windows settings> internet explorer maintenance>connection/automatic browser config>automatic browser config.
