How to filter multiple columns simultaneously in Excel?

When you apply the Filter function, after filtering one column, the next columns will be only filtered based on the result of the previous filtered column. It means that only AND criteria can be applied to more than one column. In this case, how could you apply both the AND and OR criteria to filter multiple columns simultaneously in Excel worksheet?
