Roblox won’t let you move? Here’s what to do

Disabling background apps is simple, just follow the steps we provided above.

3. Use professional software

Sometimes, you will encounter different errors if your computer has driver issues. Thus, if you have missing, damaged or outdated drivers, then the Roblox can’t move error will appear.

We recommend you to use a professional software in this regard. DriverFix is based on an innovative technology, allowing you to update your drivers with a single click.

After you have downloaded and installed it, DriverFix will scan your operating system. After this process has ended, you will be notified about any missing or outdated drivers.

Use the report from DriverFix to download and install one or all the outdated drivers. When all of them are updated, then the Roblox can’t move error should disappear.

In order to keep your PC ready for any new game or intensive workloads, be sure to use an automated driver assistant that will always look for the newest manufacturer driver versions and help you install them with ease, and we strongly recommend DriverFix.
Follow these easy steps to safely update your drivers:

  1. Download and install DriverFix.
  2. Launch DriverFix.
  3. Wait for DriverFix to detect all your faulty drivers.
  4. DriverFix will now show you all the drivers that have issues, and you just need to select the ones you’d liked fixed.
  5. Wait for DriverFix to download and install the newest drivers.
  6. Restart your PC for the changes to take effect.


Do not let a bad driver interfere with your games and installed software. Download now DriverFix and run them without a single problem.

Disclaimer: this program needs to be upgraded from the free version in order to perform some specific actions.

4. Check the server status

Another important thing is to check the server status and confirm that’s up and running.

There’s a chance that the issue is still somewhat on your side, but due to a sheer load of players playing, the server tends to go down.

In addition, there are frequent maintenance sessions, so have that in mind as well. All of this can cause spikes and you won’t be able to move your character.

You can check the server status by using the Downdetector.

5. Allow Roblox through Windows Firewall

  1. In the Windows Search bar, type Allow and open Allow an app through Windows Firewall.roblox won't let me move
  2. Click Change settings.roblox won't let me move
  3. Allow Roblox to freely communicate with Public and Private networks. It should be on the list.
  4. Confirm changes and restart the game.

For Roblox to work in a seamless manner, it obviously requires unobstructed communication to its dedicated servers.

But, there are reports about Firewall blocking it and you might need to configure this by hand. Firstly, you need to allow the program to communicate through Windows Firewall.

In addition, if you have a third-party antivirus with the associated firewall, make sure to either disable it or add an exception for Roblox, as well.

We prepared this solution with a few simple steps to allow Roblox through Windows Firewall.

6. Check time and date

  1. Right-click Start and open Settings from the Power menu.
  2. Select Time & Language.
  3. Under the Date & Time section, enable the Set time automatically and Select time zone automatically.roblox won't let me move
  4. Close Settings and restart your PC.

Furthermore, similar issues can emerge due to a discrepancy between the server time and your system time. Therefore, we need you to double-check the time and date settings in Windows 10.

Here’s how to confirm that the date and time are properly set: follow these short and simple steps.

7. Reduce the graphics quality

Finally, even though Roblox is far from a demanding game, you can try reducing the graphics settings. The processing load will reduce substantially and the issue with the character movement should be gone.

Just open Roblox Studio and navigate to Tools > Settings > Rendering. While there, select Rendering and reduce the QualityLevel option to lower values.

Have in mind that this will affect the looks of the game and might downrate the overall experience.

That’s it. You’re free to post alternative solutions or confirm some of these we provided work.

In addition, don’t forget to update your version in time, and, share the extensive in-game issues with the developer. That way they’ll know what’s wrong and fix it on time.
