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, for those third person perspective players out there, this is likely not to be the case. Adjusting your camera with the right mouse button manually can often be annoying, and when in a tight situation, can even hinder your gameplay. Shift locking however allows you to lock your cursor and camera in the center of the screen, meaning you'll never have to adjust the camera perspective again!

How to Shift Lock on Desktop

To shift lock on desktop, first open your game and head to the settings menu, which can be done by pressing the Esc key on your keyboard. Alternatively, you can click on the Roblox icon at the top left corner of the screen:

Once you've opened the menu, click on the Settings button at the top of the UI:

Next, make sure the box next to Shift Lock Switch says On. If it says this already, then you can move onto the next step. If it says Off however, you'll need to click the arrow next to the box to switch it on:

Once, you've turned shift lock on, you'll then need to close the menu and return to the game. To now activate shift lock, all you'll need to do is press the Shift key on your keyboard!

How to Shift Lock on Mobile

Although at the moment there isn't a mobile shift lock option, there is an alternative way to lock the camera when in third person mode. To do this, first open your game and head to the settings menu, which can be done by tapping the Roblox icon at the top left corner of your screen:
