I need the list of the forms I need to fill to the adjustment of status I'm confused with the website
You have not provided enough information. You did not indicate your basis for seeking adjustment of status. You also did not indicate if you are subject to the two-year home residency requirement. Given you are confused about what forms are needed, I would encourage you to at least consult an attorney to understand the process.

I assume the 2 years home residency requirement does not apply to you.
You need to submit the following forms to apply for AOS:
- Form I-485 is the main piece of your adjustment of status packet;
- Form I-130 and marriage certificate if you married a U.S. citizen; your visa petition approval notice and marriage certificate if you entered as a fiancée; and so forth) Completed or Approved I-140 if adjusting status through employment offer self petition.
Form G-325A Biographic Data Sheet
Form I-693 Medical Examination Sheet (filled out by a designated Civil Surgeon, and in a sealed, unopened envelope
Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, with supporting financial and tax documents (if your basis for applying is through a U.S. family member
Form I-765, in order to request permission to work (even if you don't plan to work, it gets you a handy photo identity card, and you won't have to pay a separate fee for it if you include this application with your adjustment of status packet)
Form I-131, to receive what's called "advance parole" travel document in case you need to travel out of the U.S. while the adjustment process is still underway (if you leave without obtaining advance parole, your green card application will be canceled; and as with the I-765, it's a good idea to file this form now, because if you wait until later, you'll have to pay a separate fee)
evidence of any criminal convictions (if you have any, it's highly possible you are inadmissible -- see an attorney)
two color photos, taken within the last 30 days, passport style
photocopy of the non-immigrant visa page of your passport (if any - not needed for a Canadian citizen)
your birth certificate, with an English translation if it's not already in English, and
required fee for the application and for biometrics (fingerprinting).
Note that AOS is not for the faint at heart. There are many obstacles and possible roadblocks on the arduous road to AOS. Make sure to engage competent immigration counsel early on, so as to make sure you don't ruin your "green card application", for any mistake, omission and the like will set you aback by months, to say the least, and could land you in deportation proceedings.
