How to Shift Lock on Roblox

Keeping your camera steady!

If you've played Roblox before, you've probably come across the options for first and third person gameplay. With the first person option, keeping your camera in position proves to be not very difficult as the game automatically keeps it locked in place for you. However, this isn't the case in third person. In third person, players have to adjust the camera with the right mouse button manually. This is annoying and when in a tight situation can even hinder gameplay. Shift locking allows locks the cursor and camera in the center of the screen, meaning there's no need to manually adjust the camera perspective!

How to Shift Lock on Desktop

To shift lock on desktop, first open your game and head to the settings menu. You can do this by pressing the ESC key on your keyboard. Alternatively, click on the Roblox icon in the top left corner of the screen:
