Is Roblox on Steam?

No, Roblox is not on Steam by default because Roblox is not a game per se. It’s a platform that lets you play certain games using the Roblox engine.

However, you can add Roblox on Steam and run it from the Steam app. This will allow you to have all your games in one place.

Keep reading to see how you can run Roblox from Steam!

1. Go to the Steam Library

After starting Steam, look in the top-left corner for the “Library” menu and open it. This will take you to your game list.

2. Select “Add a game

After opening the Steam Library, look in the bottom-left corner for the “Add a game” button. Select it and proceed with the guide!

3. Select “Add a Non-Steam Game

After selecting “Add a game“, a menu will appear where you’ll see three options:

  • Add a Non-Steam Game
  • Activate a Product on Steam
  • Browse the Steam Store for Games

Roblox is not a Steam game; you can’t activate or find it on Steam. It is a non-steam game. So, select the “Add a Non-Steam Game” option and continue with the guide!

4. Click on “Browse

Once you select “Add a non-steam game“, a new window will appear. Here, you’ll find a list of all the apps on your computer.

If you can’t find Roblox here, select “Browse” to look for Roblox manually.

5. Find the “RobloxPlayerBeta” app and select it

This is where it gets tricky. You’ll need to find the installation folder for Roblox on your computer. In my case, the app was installed in the “UsersUser – AppData – Local – Roblox” path.

In your case, it might have been installed in the “C: Program Files” path. Look for it in both places, but if you can’t find it, I recommend right-clicking on the Roblox app and selecting “Open file location“.

You may need to do this twice to find Roblox’s installation folder. Once you find it, copy the path in the Steam Windows Explorer window and select “RobloxPlayerBeta“.

Click on “Open” and proceed with the guide!

6. Select “Add selected programs

7. Play Roblox from Steam

After adding Roblox to the Steam game list, you can select it and start it from Steam any time you want. You no longer need the desktop app or the browser page to start Roblox.

Just start Steam and run Roblox from there!

My name is Alex and I have a knack for social media in all its shapes and forms. I’ve dealt with such things for quite some time and I noticed that many people have issues with social media and technicalities.

Unforeseen errors, bugs, and other problems make their use of social media problematic. These things will be discussed amply in the guides on Whizcase.

I'll present the facts as they are, and offer quick and easy solutions for them.
