The GNOME file manager should have a button "Open in terminal" + "Open as administrator"

This is a very important thing when working and setting up the system. Because I really despise using the command line because it takes a lot of time. Before this, my main system was Ubuntu. I was spending a lot of time moving files. And that's really bad.

This feature should be pre-installed with the system since there is a great need for it.

From this site it can be installed on Zorin OS 17.1 at the time of writing: How to easily open files with sudo privileges in the GNOME File Manager | TechRepublic

There is already the Option Open in Terminal built-in. Simply make a right-click on the right Side in Nautilus and choose the Option in the right-click Menu.

For Open as Administrator You can simply install a Package over the Terminal and then You have it. Simply type sudo apt install nautilus-admin and then You should find the Option in the right-click Menu.
