Can someone tell me how to enable Save and Save As on Wireshark? When I start running Wireshark on my laptop it won't let me save the capture. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Wireshark several times with no luck. In the past I was able to save captures on my laptop with Wireshark but at some point in time this changed and now Save and Save As are grayed out. Can someone shed some light on this?

I just answered my own question. You have to stop the capture before you can save it. :)
