hi I just started to learn Fedora and I was watching all youtube videos on the terminals commands and it seems to be having a different in the user, like for example the user in others video name is themselves like their computers name but mine is liveuser, I wonder if something I did wrong or anything else? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you

Welcome to ask.fedora. The reason that the people in the videos have their own names as usernames is that they've installed Fedora on their hard drives and as part of the installation they've created a user and given it their name. If the only user on your system is liveuser, you must be using a LiveUSB. Not only does it have a built in user named liveuser, any changes you make to the system go away when you reboot. If you want to customize your system, have a user with your own name or have changes survive a reboot, you need to install Fedora to your hard disk. (There's an icon on the live system's desktop for this.)
