Internet Explorer Settings via GPO

I have a client that is trying to set some GPO settings for IE9, IE10, and IE11.  He is looking to put in the basics such as favorites and things like that.  However, as you know, many settings for IE9 and up are no longer in the old place.  I think that they moved to GPO Preferences.  I can't seem to find them.  What do I need to load in order to see the preference settings for IE9 and above?

Also, the client wants to be able to set a proxy for when they are on network, but have it go away when they are off network.  Similar to how the GPO Setting for windows firewall works.  If you are on the domain you can have one setting and if you are off the domain, you can have another setting.  How would I accomplish this same type for a proxy server?

Thanks so much for your help.

Use a Windows 8.1 or Server 2012 R2 machine to manage the group policy preferences (and update the ADMX files in your central store).  You can also get those ADMX files here:

If you select the IE10 preference item it will apply to IE11 too.

Great.  Do you know if there is a way to allow us to set a proxy when on network, but remove when off network?

I think you could use WPAD for the proxy settings (though I've never tried it):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Proxy_Autodiscovery_Protocol
More info here (ignore the references to TMG):
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc995258.aspx
You can see example syntax of the WPAD.dat file here:
https://techlib.barracuda.com/display/wsflexv41/how+to+configure+proxy+settings+using+pac+files+and+wpad
And a longer example here:

Otherwise, you could try something like these:
