At the above link you can find one of the rare adapters that can be configured in monitor mode under Windows. You have to uninstall WinPcap and install Npcap, and the use WlanHelper to switch to monitor mode: when you launch Wireshark you will magically find a square to flag near the wireless interface, say "monitor mode". The only big problem is that the RadioTap header will not show the channel, and (in my knowledge) there is no possibility to choose the channel to monitor. With the same adapter I have used Acrylic Wi-Fi monitor (trial, then payd) and it seems to be most effective letting you to choose a specific band/channel or even offering a channel-hopping mode.
