Where's the wireless toolbar?

I just upgraded to Wireshark 2.6.6 on Win10, and the check mark item for showing the wireless toolbar isn't in the View menu anymore. I tried going back to previous versions, and it looks like 2.6.4 is the last version that had it. Has the wireless toolbar been removed, is there another way to show it, or is this a bug?

Please raise a Wireshark bug report for the missing wireless toolbar.

I got the same issue with the latest version.

If you have AirpCap, still you can capture in desired channel.

Install the AirpCap driver from its website. Then open AirPcap Control panel from windows start. Select the channel and click ok.

Now open wireshark and try capturing. It will capture in desired channel. All set now!

@Rajavel, I converted your answer to a comment as it doesn't answer the question as to what happened to the wireless toolbar and why it was removed.

...and it doesn't help if you don't have AirPcap.

Any progress for this issue? I am using Wireshark on MacOS. Because the wireless toolbar is no longer available, I am no longer able to set the channel on which to scan. By the way, the AirPcap product for Windows is EOL in the mean time. When can we expect the wireless toolbar back, or is there an alternative to set wifi parameters for scanning?
