Profiles are one of the most important Wireshark capabilities.  Setting up and using different profiles for different environments, protocols, and tasks is a crucial skill that we teach in our Wireshark courses.  Let's say you went to the Wireshark site and tried to find some!  Suprisingly, here is what you would get:

We hope this helps you with Wireshark!
