Have you got a capture driver? Please copy and paste the contents of the Help -> About Wireshark, Wireshark tab dialog.

From the "running" part (my emphasis):

Running on 64-bit Windows 10, build 17134, with Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4570S CPU @ 2.90GHz (with SSE4.2), with 6058 MB of physical memory, with locale English_United States.1252, without WinPcap, with GnuTLS 3.4.11, with Gcrypt 1.7.6, without AirPcap, binary plugins supported (14 loaded).

You need to install either WinPcap (this is in the Wireshark installer), or npcap.

Just a thought, have you installed the "portable" version, as this doesn't include WinPcap? If this is the case then you can download WinPcap from here.
