How to Change your Roblox Background

Background themes are one of the most commonly edited images in everyone’s device, whether computers or phones — and that includes Roblox. If you’re a fan of customizing your stuff, then you should learn how to change your Roblox background the right way! Don’t worry, it’s not that hard to figure out.

When it comes to editing your background themes, it doesn’t go all out, like editing the game icon, drop-down menu settings, and more. But it’s more than just changing your background color or background accessory. You can also add your images into the mix — as long as you use background extensions, that is.

But what are your options when it comes to Roblox backgrounds, anyway? Is there the option of another extension? Well, you’re in luck because we’re going to talk about the different options you can get, plus the pros and cons of your choice. 

Roblox Background and Theme Options

There are only two options when it comes to customizing your Roblox background: via Settings, or by using a custom browser extension tool. If you’re planning to go to the browser extension part, what we can recommend is Stylish because it’s very easy to use and highly customizable! 

However, if you don’t feel like using third-party extensions, here’s something to note about Roblox’s very own theme customizer.

Pros of Roblox background editor

  • No need for browser extensions
  • Simple and easy to use
  • Doesn’t take a lot of system resources (highly recommended for entry-level systems)

Cons of Roblox background editor

  • No background color options
  • Only offers two themes: Light Theme and Dark Mode
  • The dark mode is not the best in the business

Are you okay with the cons listed, and you’re just looking to minimize the bright lights? Are you satisfied with a page without a background image? Or are you looking for something more? If you’re looking for something more, then Stylish is basically the one you need. Be sure to check out our guide down below to learn how to use it.

Pros of Background Extensions

  • Highly customizable with plenty of theme options to choose from.
  • Easy to install
  • Change background in seconds

Cons of Background Extensions

  • Can be a resource hog (not recommended for systems with 4GB RAM and below)
  • Your background settings is only visible on your computer’s homepage.
  • Add-ons page and Third-party extensions don’t always mean safe to use. Be vigilant when sharing your basic info
