Your virtual machine doesn't have a wireless adapter. The host controls the physical network and then shares it with the guest.

as above a VM dose not use wireless
They use a bridge .
Did you set up a bridge?

Then and this is a Kali thing,the Kali developers DISABLED NETWORKING BY DEFAULT !!

if you can not turn it back on

then you failed the FIRST of many tests
( the fact that a VM dose not really use wireless would also be a fail on the first test )

figure out HOW to turn the networking back on

-- that is your first test in using Kali
you will have to find and pass the rest

Kali is NOT for " new to Linux users"

the developers and "offensive security" really do REQUIRE the user to have at least a masters degree( 6 year ) in computer science and network security
-- or --
the equivalent real world experience !!!!
