Hello. After opening Dolphin as root - it works of course - but it seems my entire session switches user to root. Every hotkey combination is starting apps as root - Dolphin and Konsole, as ones. Only reboot, or session end reset this

About the "this is dangerous" comments.
Yes, it is. But Dolphin itself warns you with "Running Dolphin as root can be dangerous. Please be careful."
Of course it should be used "sparingly". I use Dolphin (or Krusader) as root maybe once every three months :·)
Basically, if I have to copy/move *a lot* of files to protected places.

Though this is sadly missing with KDE (the ability, for example, to open up your /usr/share/backgrounds folder and take out one or two naff wallpapers, making dolphin do things you otherwise must do in terminal...

This just didn't work for me. I browsed to /usr/share and selected 'open as root', entered password and ...... NOTHING happened.

1 It's a security hole and makes users interact with their system in harmful patterns.

Note that this is a big security pitfall.
Also this won't work on Wayland as is.
