I'm new here, so I just like chess and I don’t study too deeply. I could not understand the move Qxe5. Can someone explain to me?

The move exploits three things:
1. The black knight on
f4 is trapped and will fall.
2. The black pawn on
d6 is pinned.
3. The black King is trapped behind its own pawns allowing the threat of a back-rank mate.
