welcome to the dark world of root enabled devices ...heh lol just kidding

I prefer to always change the su app to chainfire's SuperSU

And the most common file explorer is probably Root Explorer

With Root Explorer navigate to the folder you need to change permissions on files and long click on file and tap permissions
Apps are stored at these directions

Here /system/app/
Here /system/priv-app/
And here /data/app/
