How to filter cards

I tried to set a filter for a type of label I call Tasks. When I searched or clicked the desired label in the list of possible filter labels; all I saw was just my board with lists saying how many cards are in them. 

How do I filter a card based on label?

Here is are imgs of what I described above. 

Board with no filter:

Board right after I pressed the keyboard short "q" to turn on filtering:

Task Filter selected and nothing happens:

None of your cards is assigned to you (Filter 'q') and labeled Tasks.

The cards on the left have the label "Tasks"  and the filter set is Tasks though it may look like I set the "Taco" filter it's not selected it's just highlighted; the one near it has a check mark. Thanks for trying to help any other suggestions are welcome. 

Maybe I'm wrong, but I assume, the 'q' is still active. Remove it and you should see the cards labeled with Task.

So you are saying that all the cards without a q are being filtered out? I think you're correct since I tested just typeing the letter "f"; typing the letter "f" just asks to filter, but not anything specific. Then what does q"q do? I thought iwas the keybaord shot cut for filtering?

Thanks I really appreciate the help. 

Do you happen to know if the feature exists to filter cards that don't apply to every group you select?

You mentioned the shortcut 'q' in your initial post. This toggles on/off the filtering of cards assigned to you. If on, and none of the cards is assigned to you, you dont see any card.

Yep I didn't know. Thanks for the help.
