How to Open Nautilus as Root

There are two ways to open Nautilus as root. The first method is to use the sudo command. The second method is to install an utility software called beesu.

Open Nautilus as Root using Sudo
To use sudo, you need to be in Administrator Group and you need to open Nautilus from a terminal. Please refer to instructions on How to Add users to the Administrator Group in Fedora.

Use the command:
$sudo nautilus

To run nautilus as root without locking the terminal, you need to run nautilus in the background. Use the command:
$sudo nautilus & 

For the second method, refer to this post on Install and Configure Beesu on Fedora.
