I do not know exactly what I did, but I am a beginner/noob with Blender. When I select one shape all of the shapes have an orange outline. I don't really know but they are all somehow on the same line/tab. I wanna put them each back to their own tab. Look at the picture to see what I mean. 3 of the shapes have an orange outline when I click "cube" even though it should only be one cube. I wanna make each one its own line again. See how the cones are not selected, each cone has its own separate line/tab. I feel like it is really simple to fix, but it is probably a rare problem so I do not know how to fix it since I am new. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    $\begingroup$ The most likely reason this happened was because you were still in Edit Mode when you added all of the other meshes, so they became part of the original cube. $\endgroup$

Try following these steps:

  1. Select the object (In this case it is 'Cube')
  2. Go into Edit Mode (Press Tab)
  3. Press A (Deselect/Select) until everything of that object is selected
  4. Press P -> By loose parts

All of the objects should each have a different 'outline'
