[Bug 1572304] Re: Modified column in File Manager (Files) does not display time


Thanks for your report.

The time is shown for files which were modified today, and otherwise
not. This is the case also in 16.04. I changed the wording to be less

  Modified column in File Manager (Files) does not display time

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  The Modified column does not provide the time of the file, only the
  date.  I have not yet confirmed for 16.04, but the bug persists in

  Files - version 3.14.2
  Description:	Ubuntu 15.10
  Release:	15.10

  As documented:


        Gives the date and time of the last time the file was modified.

  In fact it only shows the date.  Suggested fix from 2012 was to modify the source code and there are notes about 
  how this cropped up in the first place.
