    Where is the timestamp on this Ubuntu 20.04 screenshot?

    Hi,

    In the attached thumbnail, you will see a screenshot I made this afternoon of a glitch (an unexplained download) happening on an Ubuntu 20.04 OS.

    I wanted to check the timestamp on the screenshot, so I pressed properties.

    But when Properties opens, there is no timestamp.

    I made the screenshot at 17:26 (5:26 PM), but there is no record of the time in the properties section of the screenshot.

    Check like this
    Code:
    stat </path_to/filename>
    Example
    Code:
    mafoelffen@Mikes-ThinkPad-T520:~/Pictures$ stat ./Screenshot_lunar-lander-05_2022-12-11_01:28:25.png
      File: ./Screenshot_lunar-lander-05_2022-12-11_01:28:25.png

    The metadata of the png saved with the ScreenShot utility does not have the timestamp
    Code:
    mafoelffen@Mikes-ThinkPad-T520:~/Pictures$ identify ./Screenshot_lunar-lander-05_2022-12-11_01:28:25.png
    ./Screenshot_lunar-lander-05_2022-12-11_01:28:25.png PNG 1024x768 1024x768+0+0 8-bit sRGB 16964B 0.000u 0:00.000
