The one that comes to mind is... if you're an "Administrator" then

I think 'sudo -i' does what you want.

I don't suggest any of these changes for other products or spins: that
would probably be a nonstarter. Just for Workstation.

Disk layout needs some work, seriously. It might have been a bug but
when I installed it on my laptop i couldn't get it to automatically
create btrfs partitions + encrypted volumes. I spent an easy
30minutes+ fighting with Anaconda and at the end of it I threw in the
towel and just opted for ext4 + encryption because thats what I could
get it to show me... in the end what I was told I was gonna get (ext4
+ encrypted, possibly LVM in there too) and what I GOT (btrfs +
encrypted... which is what I wanted anyway, but the installer told me
I wasn't gonna get it) were very different.
Ouch, that really needs to never happen. :(
