Saving File

$Key = “HKCU:\Software\ROBLOX Corporation\Environments\roblox-player”
while ($true)
$CurrentValue = (Get-ItemProperty -Path $Key -Name “LaunchExp”).LaunchExp
if ($CurrentValue -eq “InApp”)
#Write-Output “Value is InApp.”
Set-ItemProperty -Path $Key -Name “LaunchExp” -Value “InBrowser”
Start-Sleep -Milliseconds 50

Editing Registry Editor

  • Type regedit in the start menu search bar and select Registry Editor (Desktop app) from the list of results.
  • Move over to the Roblox registry
  • Paste or enter the following code manually, “Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ROBLOX Corporation\Environments\roblox-player”
  • You will see a registry by the name of “LaunchExp”. Right-click on the registry and select Modify.
  • In the Modify menu, change the value from “InApp” to “InBrowser”.
