You can launch the file manager as root from the terminal with sudo -i nautilus.

Alternatively, you can install beesu, which is a program that launches a graphical prompt to do something as root. And then use beesu - nautilus to open the file manager as root. If you tie this command to a launcher or shortcut, then you won't need to interact with a terminal at all.
