Roblox is a great place to build things, play games, and hang out with friends, but if you are new, all of the choices may seem a little overwhelming. But have no fear, because we're here to help. When you sign into Roblox, you will see several links that will help you manage your account and explore the many Roblox features. These are primarily displayed by two navigation bars: one located at the top of the page, and one located to the left of the page.
