Create an Elevated Nautilus Launcher
Go to the Gnome Menu > Applications > Preferences > Main Menu
I've chosen to create mine in the "System Tools" menu group in the left panel, highlighting that then selecting "New Item" on the right panel.
Give the launcher a name such as Elevated Nautilus in the "Name" box.
in the "Command" box. This will run the file manager as Root.
Select "OK" button and "Close" button.
You can now go to Menu > Applications > System Tools and find the Elevated Nautilus launcher in place. You will need to enter an admin password to activate it.
Be careful with this one, as it runs with root permissions, you can use it to delete or change any files in your filesystem. RC
