Update Docker Desktop behind proxy

It is possible to set a proxy in the settings.
But this proxy is not used when checking for docker desktop updates.
These proxy settings are only used when connecting to a docker image.

When click “check for updates”:
No user credentials are send when analyse it in a wireshark network dump.
Where can i configure the proxy for the update check?

kind regards,


I have same issue. I have to use a corporate proxy with NTLMv2 auth. The proxy is already set in the windows. The docker UI use it but not send credentials. I also have a local proxy for tool like npm which doesn’t support NTLMv2 for proxy auth. When I changed the proxy from corporate to my local in Windows update check works.
