How do I remove "node" from my URLs?

Hi! I’m new to Drupal (like, just started it last week), but I’m experienced with other CMS like WordPress and Mura.

One thing that’s bothering me now is that all my links have “node” in them, like example.com/node/6, instead of the actual page name, like example.com/recipes. How do I change this?

It looks like I can add specific URLs in the page data, but that seems cumbersome. In WordPress, permalinks are automatic. Also the search is particularly odd, with my URL being example.com/search/node/. How do I get rid of “node” here?

Thanks!
Brendan
