How to change ‘root’ password in Ubuntu

After the complete installation of the Ubundu, i tried to login with ‘root’, but i dont know the password. I don’t think the installation process of Ubuntu asking the password of ‘root’. I installed the Ubuntu via Windows using wubi.exe(dual boot) and it asks for personal username and password in the installation wizard. i used the same username to get in to Ubuntu.

But in some cases, i need the root authentication to access Ubuntu in depth. Here i found the way to change the ‘root’ password.
