I am brand new to Ethereum. I am reading up on the basics on https://ethereum.org. I am still a little confused about the differences between a wallet and an "account." According to this page https://ethereum.org/en/wallets/ a wallet is just a way of interacting with my Ethereum account, and that I can "...swap wallet providers at any time."
But where do I create this Ethereum account? I have installed several wallets. Coinbase, Exodus, and Trust. And in those apps I have an Ethereum address (the long hex string), but they are all different.
I expected to go somewhere and create one Ethereum account, and then access that account using different wallet applications. But that doesn't appear to be how it works.
Have I created 3 different "Ethereum accounts?" I haven't deposited any Ether or any other crypto in any to any of these addresses. So if I did create 3 different accounts I guess its no big deal. Do I just need to pick one and use that for my "main" account?
Obviously I am misunderstanding the fundamentals here. Thanks for any help.
