Sounds like you are running Wireshark with a different account, possibly as root via sudo.

If that's the case, please check the directories of that account.

If that's not the case, please post the output of the following command. Run it on the CLI in the same account you were running Wireshark.

ls -alrt ~/Desktop

what is CLI?

ls -alrt ~/root/Desktop

correct would be:

ls -alrt ~root/Desktop


ls -alrt /root/Desktop

but you won't have access as a regular user. So:

sudo ls -alrt /root/Desktop
