I am trying to learn Wireshark.
https://www.wireshark.org/docs/wsug_html_chunked/ChCapInterfaceSection.html states that the “Capture Interfaces” dialog box looks like:
When actually running Wireshark, it looking like the following:
I recognize that the manual is 2.1 and the latest is 2.2.4, however, these look very different.
How must I modify the instructions on the manual to use 2.2.4 regarding the capture interface dialog? Are there any 2.2.4 specific instructions?
EDIT. Just realized when I went to the next page https://www.wireshark.org/docs/wsug_html_chunked/ChCapCaptureOptions.html , there was something more similar to what I am seeing. Why didn't I see the “Capture Interfaces” dialog box when selecting

As you may have noticed the WSUG is a bit out of date. The major difference you'll find is that older screenshots use the old Gtk UI while newer ones use the, well, newer Qt-based UI.
As for your question, the Qt UI has given us the ability (or otherwise caused us) to rethink a lot of the dialogs and interfaces. So rather than having separate "Capture options" and "Capture interfaces" dialogs there now one unified dialog that serves both functions (less dialogs means simpler which hopefully means easier/more intuitive to use).
