Try it Grasshopper.

"su -l" logs you in as root. It asks for the password IF it is not already

Joanne and Tomasz, you are taking me too much literally....
Editing a file with Kate from the GUI was just an example....

Issue, as per Joanne suggestion, the  "su -l"  command, and give the right password.
Now start Dolphin on the GUI and try, as an example, to delete the file  /etc/host  which is owned by root,
or to in general to perform an action a bit more invasive than just reading it, on a file owned by root...  
If you haven't logged in as root from the initial screen of Debian, that will be impossible.

And please don't tell me that I could use the command  rm  on the command line to delete that file...
That I do know.  Please tell me how could I perform *any* operation on a root-owned file, from the GUI,
without logging in initially from the login screen as root.
