The easiest way is to look right in the database tables, date_modified field.

For starters you simply need to copy date_added to date_modified, where date_modified is empty (0000-00-00 00:00:00).

P.S.: Never ever in the future make screenshots from your monitor. Make normal screenshots like everybody else.
