Hi @otrtomek welcome to WordPress Core Trac,

The field you highlighted in your screenshot is not a user role filter but a tool to change user roles from on to another.
You have to select one or more users using the checkbox provided on the left in the user table, then you can use this tool to change their role.

  • Focuses administration added

Just to clarify a bit more, the user role filter on that screen are the links below the heading:

Wszyscy (2) | Administrator (1) | Redaktor (1)

As noted above, the highlighted dropdown is not a user role filter, it can be used to change the role of selected users.
