Universal Roblox app shows you weird context menu options like "export to Excel", and hangs when you do

Reproduction Steps

Windows 10 Home.
I launched the universal Roblox app from a banner shown on the website.

Navigate to a group.
Right click empty space.
Note strange context menu options that are pretty nonsensical for the context…
Export to Excel.

Seems this might be related to Universal Roblox app opens social links in internet exploder. The group section just seems to be an embedded webpage but the web engine being used has some dated opinions.

Expected Behavior

These context menu options probably shouldn’t be here. I should not be able to export to Excel.

Actual Behavior

At least one of these options (Export to Excel) hangs / freezes / locks up the app, in addition to doing something that doesn’t make any sense. When I click in Roblox after closing Excel, it makes the Windows “busy” sound and nothing happens, no other feedback, I cannot close/minimize. The window does not go white like it would in a typical freeze. (I later discovered Excel was still running in the background in a weird state tying up the app.)

The encoding option in this context menu is also Fun.


Refrain from exporting to Excel no matter how much you want to.
