Quite simply, you open a terminal. You type inThank you for your response.
This is a dumb question. Nautilus is my File Manager. Where do I enter "pkexec nautilus" to get into root?
....then hit 'Enter'. This will open Nautilus as user /root.
.....should work just as effectively.
I know some are now preferring to use "pkexec", but I would hesitate to take that advice from someone that's just recently joined and appears to be advocating use of this wholesale. "Sudo" has been the default command for years.....I fail to see the need to suddenly change that.
