Yes, I do that regularly on UNIX.  It'd be nice to have the feature on 
Windows too.

Including an option to cause Wireshark to display in UTC rather than
local would be a significant benefit to me and this community.  I
suspect that it is as simple as setting a preference and inserting a
switch between localtime() and gmtime() (or their equivalents) in
whatever code is used to convert the timestamps to calendar format.
