Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hello group, I would be grateful if you could help me in a project I am working.

In essence I want to create maps with street names(like in the screenshot) I actually have a qgis 2.18 app but when i try to download shapefiles it only get roads layers.

Where are you downloading your shapefiles? OSM isn't divided into layers like most GIS, so your provider may be filtering what you've downloaded.

For a another simple approach (without uploading OSM data into PostGIS) I would recommend a series of overpass queries to build layers in QGIS. There is a QGIS plugin which uses overpass syntax to populate layers. However, if you need areas then directly running queries in Overpass-turbo and downloading the geojson is more appropriate.
