How do I change the capture options, so that only the first 120 bytes of each data packet is collected?

Presuming you're using the New 2.x Qt version, then in the capture options dialog, double click the Snaplen filed for the interface you wish to capture on and adjust the number as you require.

If using the legacy GTK+ version, then double click on the row for the interface you wish to capture on, and in the resulting dialog, check the box for "Limit each packet to" and then enter the number as you require.
