Set 226 to win the West Indies got off to the worst possible start, losing four wickets in the first six overs before Stuart Broad snuffed out any chance of a recovery by the middle order and finishing with figures of three for 20.
Broad's effort and that of Liam Plunkett (two for 38) and Jimmy Anderson (two for 23) cancelled out a superb spell of pace bowling from West Indian Fidel Edwards, who finished with five for 45.
Collingwood said: "Jimmy started off really well with Liam Plunkett then Stuart Broad came in and kept that same pressure on the batsmen. That is great for a young guy who has not got that much experience.
"The bowlers were magnificent, they got the ball in the right areas. We wanted to take the intensity we had from the Twenty20 games onto the field and we did.
"I wanted the bowlers to be aggressive and get the ball into good 'Lord's areas'. It worked really well and we fielded like a pack of hounds which is what we speak about all the time.
"It feels good in the middle when everyone is in it together."
Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Dwayne Bravo had steadied the West Indian ship slightly with a stand of 61 for the fifth wicket but Broad induced an edge behind from Bravo before bowling Denesh Ramdin two balls later. Dwayne Smith got an inside edge and the West Indies were 93 for seven.
Plunkett and Anderson had done the early damage with Plunkett removing the dangerous West Indian captain Chris Gayle, caught hooking by Broad at long leg.
Anderson then removed Runako Morton and Marlon Samuels in the same over before running out Devon Smith with a superb throw from the deep.
Smith had slashed Plunkett past point but was beaten by Anderson's return when he was coming back for a second run and the West Indies were deep in the mire.
Chanderpaul plodded on, as he did in the recent Test series between the two sides, making 53 not out but received little or no support from his teammates apart from Bravo and Ravi Rampaul (24).
Edwards' burst of four wickets in 13 balls after a 60 minute rain interruption knocked the wind out of England's sails and helped to reduce them from 181 for four before the rain to 225 all out in 7.1 overs.
Edwards admitted his experience of touring England three years ago had helped him.
"I learnt from the last time I was here. Bowling here you have got to hit the wicket harder which I didn't do last time. To get five wickets at Lord's is a dream," he said.
Bowling with pace and ferocity Edwards started the collapse when he bowled England captain Paul Collingwood for five before dismissing Dimitri Mascarenhas in similar fashion.
After trapping Plunkett caught behind hooking he bowled a bouncer at young Stuart Broad following up to the batsman's end of the pitch and exchanging words.
This may have unnerved the Englishman as his next ball had Broad caught behind.
Owais Shah made 42 whilst all this was going on at the other end but was run out in the last over as he tried to steal the strike.
Shah was on of five of England's early batsmen who got a start and did not convert it into a significant score.
