One may ask -- what's the problem here, can't you just select the window content and use
Ctrl+V? Well, I was disappointed to learn that no, it's not straightforward. Good news it's still possible.
First of all we'll need to mark all the packets that we're interested in. You can either use a context menu item "Mark packet (toggle)" or just hit
Ctrl+Mwhen the focus is set on the packet we're looking into. You'll have to repeat the procedure for all the packets you want to extract. If there's just too much for doing it manually you can play with different options in the Edit menu. You can toggle the Marked status for all displayed packets, so basically you can benefit from applying a display filter first.

Now go to
|Exporting a Wireshark capture to a file|
And here's the key step. Set the export file type to Plain text, select the Marked packets option and make sure that you see Packet details checkbox selected on the right. You might want to play with different suboptions here: As displayed, All collapsed or All expanded.

And this is it. Now hit Save and check out the contents of the export file.
