unable to create folders or add files without being sudo or root

so I am coming from debian and before that manjaro. I have only been playing with linux for about 2 years now and enjoying it. I found bazzite and wanted to try it out. I installed it as of 2 days ago and like what I see so far. It is my first fedora kernel my desktop environment is kde. I noticed that my main drive is owned by root and I cant add any folders or files in dolphin. I can sudo in the terminal np. So my question is: is this normal for fedora or did I mess something up on install?

What folders are you trying to modify? Atomic images have some differences from typical. See https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fedora-silverblue/technical-information/#filesystem-layout

stick to operating in your home folder /home/$USER/, and you won't need to have elevated permissions
