When I set Proxy Server in Internet Option->Connection->LAN Settings (Windows) which protocols does it support in which layers?

HTTP, HTTPS, FTP or...?

Download Manager also uses this setting?

Web proxies forward HTTP requests. Some web proxies allow the HTTP CONNECT to set up forwarding of arbitrary data through the connection; normally this is only allowed to port 443 to allow forwarding of HTTPS traffic.
