Hi, as the title said, I'd like to see ipv4 instead of ipv6 in my columns. Is there a quick way set it? Also, being new to this particular technology, I was wondering if there is simple way to export the summary list of website names/uri, time, source ip (v4)? Many thanks.

There is no "instead of." An IPv6 packet doesn't have IPv4 addresses to show, unless there is some sort of tunneling going on and IPv4 packets are encapsulated inside IPv6 packets.

Wireshark's default Source and Destination address columns will show the highest layer addresses in the packet, whether that's Ethernet, IPv4, or IPv6.

Thanks for your prompt response, much appreciated. Wondering if you have any bright idea about the second part of the question...

It's best not to ask two unrelated questions at once; a Q&A site isn't a forum, it's supposed to be a site where you can see if somebody's asked a given question already, and read the answer if they have, and ask if they haven't. Think of it as being like, to go all buzzwordy, a "crowdsourced FAQ".

So you might want to ask your second question separately, so people can find the answer if they have the same question.
