Whether you run a small business or work from home using a local area network (LAN), you may sometimes need to configure settings. For example, you may want to change the number of devices that can be connected and the IP addresses these devices will receive.

But many times, you may not be able to do this if the LAN proxy settings are disabled for some reason. It may be flagged and grayed out, perhaps accidentally, or you've changed some settings you don't remember. Whatever the reason, it can be frustrating. However, there is a solution available for this, so there is nothing to worry about.



Let's see how to re-enable LAN settings in Windows 10.

Solution: via the registry editor

Step 1: press the Tasto Windows + R together on the keyboard to open the file run box. Now Write Regedit in the search field and press Log in to open the file Registry Editor.

Step 2: A Registry Editor window, go to the following path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftInternet Explorer



Step 3: A Edit DWORD (32-bit) value dialog box, edit the file Valuable data field of 1 to 0.

Click ok to save changes and exit.

That is. Now restart your PC and you should now see the LAN Settings button enabled on your Windows 10 PC.
