The dropdown fields at the top of the History screen allow you to see specific types of transaction, over a time period of their choice.
You can select by type of transaction - Send, Reeive, Swap, Stake, Add Liquidity - as well as limiting your transaction view to wallets only or exchanges only. You may additionally filter by a specific exchange or a specific network. The latter is useful as, for example, a Metamask public address is the same for Ethereum, Polygon (Matic) and Binance Smart Chain, so filtering by this wallet address would show transactions on all three chains if you do not apply the Chain filter.
You may also filter by Tag: read more about Tags here.
