My Settings

Click the left gear icon to access My Settings, where players and GMs can adjust important features in Roll20.


My Settings

Players can personalize their settings to match their preferences since most options are specific to each player rather than the game.

In this tutorial, we explain every option available in the My Settings sidebar, including popped out character sheets, scroll wheel options, 3D dice, and more.

Personalization & Display


Display Name

Your Display Name is initially set as your Roll20 account username by default. The display name is positioned below your avatar portrait on the very bottom of the Tabletop. You can change your display name to suit your individual gaming needs to match specific character name or a game role. Click on the Save Name button to save any changes made in the Display Name text box.

Token Bar Colors + Display Settings

Customize the colors of Token Radial Menu Bubbles and bars, and adjust the position of Token's Status Indicator Overlays. See Token Features for more information.

Deck Size

You can adjust the size of the card decks on the table using this slider. This is especially useful if you have text-heavy cards that you need to be able to read even while they are sitting flipped over on the top of the deck.



Enable Animated Graphics

This setting enables animated graphics for your game. We recommend you enable Animated Graphics, unless you are encountering lag issues.

Audio & Video


These settings manage what sort of VOIP Video and Voice chat you want to broadcast and receive. These settings will be retained when you return to the game, so you only need to change them once.

Master Music Volume Level

This slider controls the maximum volume of the Jukebox.

Others Can Hear Or See & I Can Hear Or See

These control what you wish to receive and share with other users.

Chat Tech

This controls what version of chat technology you would like to use in your games. To learn more, you can visit the Video and Voice Chat page of our Help Center.

Audio Output, Audio Input & Video Input Sources

This is where you can select your Microphone, Video, and Headphones/Speakers for gameplay.

WebRTC Debug Log & Reconnect

The WebRTC Debug Log and Reconnect button are two troubleshooting tools for our Video and Voice feature. To learn more about this feature go to Video and Voice Chat Troubleshooting.


Video Display

To learn more about Video Display and avatar use, visit the Video And Voice Chat page in the Help Center.

Text Chat Options


Enabled Background Chat Sounds

When enabled, you will hear a notification sound whenever a new item is added to the chat log. This notification will not alert you if you are currently in the chat tab.

Enable Chat Avatars

When Chat Timestamps are enabled, a mini icon or character portrait will appear in the chatroom when a user enters chat, representing either their avatar or the character they are speaking as.

Enable Chat Timestamps

When enabled, each chat message will be prefaced with a timestamp to show when the message was sent. Timestamps are always stored for all chat messages (since 4/13/2015). Displaying of timestamps is a per-player setting that may be adjusted at any time to show or hide timestamps. Chat message timestamps show only the time for messages sent within the last 24 hours, while older messages include both the date and time.


Dice Options


Enable Advanced Dice

When enabled, dice icons will become available in the chat log when dice are rolled. You can drag those dice icons around to reorder the dice, and even drag them onto a map to have a Rollable Table Token of the die.

Enable 3D Dice

When 3D Dice are enabled, 3D Dice will be rolled over the Tabletop whenever a valid roll is made in either chat, the Dice Roller, or via Macros.

Automatically Roll 3D Dice

When this feature is enabled, 3D Dice will be rolled automatically.

Keyboard Shortcuts


Use Advanced Keyboard Shortcuts

This checkbox toggles on the Advanced Shortcuts for Roll20.

Exiting and GM View Modes

Finally, at the bottom of the My Settings tab is a button to Exit the current game. Clicking on the Exit Game button will return you to Your Games page.

As a GM, there will be an additional button either labeled Re-Join as Player or Re-Join as GM. This button lets you leave and rejoin your game as a player. It is useful for previewing your game from a player's perspective or transferring GM responsibilities to one of your players.

You can right-click on the Re-Join as Player button, copy the link, and save that link as a bookmark to more easily and directly access the Game as a player.
