How to quickly switch to Root GUI without logging out

On Linux it's best to not use your root account  unless you know exactly what you are doing, but instead make another admin account that will require you to type sudo for admin actions.
However, you may need to use the Root account for certain other action, access files on Root, copy files over, or view files on other accounts, ect..
It's possible to use the Root account while being logged into your normal account, which saves a lot of hassle.

While logged in as your normal account, in your terminal, type: gksudo nautilus
Enter the root password, then a GUI windows will pop up.
