    David,

    I think this is what you want instead:

    Any

    ---All

    ------Application / Name / Contains / Thunderbird

    ------Application / Version / Version Not Lower Than / 102.0.2

    My collection is working properly.  I'm just trying to understand how collection filters work. 

    Also, I think your version is the same as mine.  I don't think you need the extra Any.

    David,

    I always structure mine in that way in case I want to add additional applications later, e.g. show me all computers with Outlook over version 20 or Thunderbird over 102. In that case you would want those grouped under different "All" group filters, but you're correct that you don't technically need it for your collection. I find that it is more logical this way so I prefer to do it that way.

    If you want a more in-depth explanation of how it works under the hood I can't answer that unfortunately, maybe a PDQ employee could chime in and answer.

    Your structure makes sense.

    I try to look at filters like Boolean Legos. "ALL of the lines contained within this group filter must be TRUE for a computer to appear in this collection."

    "Does this computer have an application whose name contains 'Thunderbird' AND whose version is not lower than 102.0.2?"
