How to install Roblox and Roblox Studio on a Chromebook - Windows Version


Today we are looking at how to install the windows version of Roblox and Roblox Studio on a Chromebook.  Please take note that it can be very laggy on a Chromebook, on mine it is unplayable, but works.  My Chromebook has an Intel Celeron N3350 CPU, so if your has a better CPU, it should run better.

Please follow the video/audio guide as a tutorial where we explain the process step by step and use the commands below.

This tutorial will only work on Chromebooks with an Intel or AMD CPU (with Linux Apps Support) and not those with an ARM64 architecture CPU.

A big thanks to MekuruRoger ManiaLeosGamingDaysYT, and Said Guiza for testing it for me and helping me with some troubleshooting.

Update: with the release of Chrome OS 96, the Linux container on a Chromebook has been upgraded to a newer version.  Because of this, we updated the commands to keep the tutorial relevant.  If you have any questions, please let us know on Youtube.
