Pretending to be the root user with sudo
Getting to grips with the command line in Linux will mean that you'll always be able to manage practically any Linux distribution (and there are literally hundreds) without having to learn a new interface. Command line instructions are often quicker to implement as well.
Adding this to the beginning of any command will execute the command as if you are logged on as root
$ sudo mkdir /home/anydirectory
