You can also add an entry to the right click nautilus menu, Open as administrator
by installing nautilus-gksu
Search for and download in the software centre.
This will allow you to open files and folders as root.
You should only use if instructed to do so(eg edit a certain file owned by root) or you know what your doing.
Most files and folders outside your home directory are owned by root for security and stability of your system.
