How to use the Roblox Windows App Beta

I’m refering to this: PSA: The Roblox app beta for Windows is now underway!

This beta is only for 1% of users (on Windows), however just like this, you can force it. And it actually includes this new menu in-game as well!

So let’s go to how to enable it:

First of all, you’re gonna create a Roblox Player shortcut in your desktop.


After that, open it to make sure you’re in the newest version, the tinkering we’re gonna do is gonna be reset every update. Roblox usually updates every Wednesday.

Now, right click the Roblox Player Icon and click Properties.

Now you should see something like this:

This is where you change some stuff. First of all, change RobloxPlayerLauncher.exe to RobloxPlayerBeta.exe (RobloxPlayerBeta is the actual client)

Now, you’ll add --app in the end of this line, just like this:

Now, click Apply, then OK, and now open Roblox, you’re now using the new app! Yay!

Look at this beauty!

There’s some video tutorials as well;
There’s for English and Portuguese.

  • Joining through the browser enough times can cause the app to log off! Try using the app version as much as you can, this is a not problem with people inside the beta.

  • Joining through the browser will not cause the new app to open.

  • You’ll have to do this again every update, in this case once a week, around Wednesday.

If you any trouble following the steps above, let me know, I can help you.


Thank you. I’ve been wanting to do this for so long.


Woah! I didn’t think this would be possible! Thanks for answering my question!


No problem, glad you’re enjoying it!

No problem! :)

Also here’s some examples of the in-game menu itself which come with the new app;



You’re probably still using “RobloxPlayerLauncher” instead of “RobloxPlayerBeta”. If that still doesn’t work, try writing the path in quotation warks “”, and then write –app outside these quotation marks.

I’m not.

Can you try using two "-"s instead? I think that fixed it for me :thinking:

Aye, thank you :smiley:


This UI is very clean, once again thanks.

Isn’t this against the Tos? :frowning_face:

Nope. The guy who talked about the in-game menu didn’t get banned or anything for it, his post didn’t get taken down or anything, so no. There’s no reason for it to be anyway.


Can I use this on Mac? I can probably work out how to but how about compatibility wise?

Nope, :( maybe? I don’t know how mac works, but I’m pretty sure that isn’t even on the code of the mac version as of now.

I honestly would use it but there’s a few things first:

  • To reverse this, we have to change it back from RobloxPlayerBeta.exe —app to RobloxPlayerLauncher.exe, correct?
  • Once we switch back, will the website still function normally (launch games, etc)?

Yeah. Or just not open the Roblox Player app, just use the browser too if you want.

It will work no matter what.


Ok great, I’ll be using this, thanks!


Can you do this on Mac if so how?

Nope. The code is probably not even on Mac right now.

WHY JUST WHY? :tired_face: :disappointed_relieved: :sob:
