Create menu item to start nemo as root...OK

right click on menu
click configure
clcik menu
click "open the menu editor"
click a category (I chose system tools (as it is empty on cinnamon))
click "new item" on the right
fill in the launcher properties;
NAME: nemo (snem, or what ever you want to call it)
COMMAND: pkexec nemo
COMMENT: nemo_as_root (or whatever you want)
Optional, if you like change the icon from the default rocket (you can edit any of that later anyway)
click OK

Done.
