"Roblox" is a virtual world where users can design their own 3D, animated games and play them online. According to its website, "Roblox" is one of the top-ranked gaming websites on the Internet, with over 4 million unique monthly users. It is most popular among children age 7 and above. Because all content is user-generated, the excessive use of textures, colors and building blocks in some "Roblox" games can cause a lag in the time it takes a game to respond to a command. This lag can be reduced with some simple adjustments in the "Roblox" Studio settings.

Click on "Start," followed by "Programs." Select "Roblox studio."

Click on "Tools" and then "Settings." A new window will open.

Click on "Rendering" in the far left column of the Settings window.

Click on the drop-down menu next to "AluminiumQuality" and select "Low."

Click on the drop-down menu next to "CompoundMaterialQuality" and select "Low."

Click on the drop-down menu next to "CorrodedMetalQuality" and select "Low."

Click on the drop-down menu next to "DiamondPlateQuality" and select "Low."

Click on the drop-down menu next to "GrassQuality" and select "Low."

Click on the drop-down menu next to "IceQuality" and select "Low."

Click on the drop-down menu next to "SlateQuality" and select "Low."

Click on the drop-down menu next to "TrussQuality" and select "Low."

Click on the drop-down menu next to "WoodQuality" and select "Low."

Click on the drop-down menu next to "FrameRateManager" and select "Off."

Click on the drop-down menu next to "Shadows" and select "Off."

Click "Save."

Restart "Roblox."
