Moving files to a directory, with privileges?

I need to move files from a folder to a folder. First I need to make the destination. Simple right? No. Why do I need privileges to mkdir; and once I cd into my destination, in a terminal, how can I open in file manager and maintain privileges?

You can elevate your file manager to Root with

sudo -i

Then launch the file manager. If using Zorin Core:


Zorin Lite:


It will stay in Root until you close it out.
