- Restart your system. This is the classic troubleshooting step. Resetting your system, whether you are playing on Desktop or Mobile, will free up resources that may impact your connection stability.
- Restart your internet connection. Freeing up your internet bandwidth by restarting your modem will allow you to improve your connection and fix other issues as well.
- Don’t use a VPN. One major disadvantage of using a VPN is that it will slow down your internet connection. Turn it off to improve your internet speed.
- Change your connection type. If you are playing on a Mobile device, you can switch between Wi-Fi and mobile data, or even another Wi-Fi connection.
- Run Roblox in compatibility mode. This will ensure that any compatibility issues with the latest version of Windows will be addressed by running the game in a Windows legacy version.
- Right-click the Roblox app and click Properties.
- Go to the Compatibility tab.
- Check the box reading “Run the program in compatibility mode for:” and select any version of Windows that pops out.
- While you’re here, you might as well check the “Run this program as an administrator” box, making any permission issues disappear.
- Delete Roblox logs. There is a possibility that some of the Roblox files may have become corrupted. Deleting them is the way to fix that.
- Press Windows + R to launch the Run dialog.
- Paste %localappdata%Robloxlogs in the dialog box and press Enter.
- Select all the files, delete them, and empty the Recycle Bin.
- Open the Run dialog option again and run %USERPROFILE%AppDataLocalLowRbxLogs
- Delete all the files here as well.
