I'm trying some commands out and it seems they indicate that there are three user instances running concomitantly. Can you explain what these mean, or if there is something to correct? Thankyou

Could you possibly tell us what commands you're trying out, and exactly what it's telling you? You aren't giving us enough information to understand why you think it's telling you that there are 3 users...

Is there an award for being stupid? If not one should be named after me.

this should clear things up a bit. Sorry

Because you have two terminals open, each one is a new "login" from the same user.
