    There is a desktop application with https as communication protocol between client and server. When I am trying to capture desktop application traffic in Fiddler with below option -

    Tools -> Options -> Connections -> Fiddler listens on Port -> 443 / 8888, seeing no traffic being capturing in the tool.

    Please suggest if I am missing.

    Fiddler is a proxy. So you have to set your app to use Fiddler as a proxy. On startup Fiddler changes the WinINET proxy settings which your app may or may not respect.

    You can use Echo Mirage tool that will give you info for communications (inbound/outbound) for desktop apps.
