What does the term F4 mean in Roblox?

The letter combination “F4” comes from the top row of function keys on a computer keyboard. These keys – labeled F1, F2, F3, and so on – have long been used to execute a variety of predefined tasks within a variety of programs and video games. It wasn’t long before gamers learned to associate “F4” with the fourth function key.

A common way to exit a program or quit a certain task on a computer is by pressing the Alt key and the F4 function key simultaneously. In a similar vein, players will often tell other players in Roblox chat that they wish to leave the game by typing “F4” in the conversation box.

For example, if a player is being toxic to others or is otherwise inexperienced with the game, more seasoned players may advise them to press the F4 button (or alt+F4) to employ a unique power. While in fact, players are telling the toxic player to log out of the game out of pure anger.

However, the F4 key by itself is useless in Roblox until you combine it with the Alt key. To “quit the game” is the most popular interpretation of the word F4.
