Modifying restricted folders without terminal

Forums: 

Hello guys, I have Ubuntu 11.10 and installed Xampp for linux on it, but the Xampp installation requires that you extract it in the /opt folder, I am the administrator of the OS, but whenever I want to modify a content in the folder, it doesn't want to change, it's like I am just a user, but when I attempt to modify it with the terminal using sudo, it works just fine, but it takes time, and I really don't like to waste my time, so please, tell me a way to be able to modify the /opt folder without having to do it in the terminal. Thank you.
