You don't.. that's not a standard attribute on files..
The way to track this is to turn on your auditing, and then check the audit logs...

If you really want to keep an easier view, you could put together a script that would sweep your audit logs and keep a running record of who the last owner was.. some sort of CSV table, or even an XML file..

If 3rd party program is an option... see https://www.xyplorer.com/index.php
XYplorer is a file manager for Windows. It looks similar to Windows Explorer.

Extended Properties in Columns. Now you can finally show all extended file properties in columns. Like Owner, Subject, Comments, Camera Model, Aperture, File Version, Album, Artist, Title, etc. There are hundreds of them in today's Windows.

I don't know if that's close enough to your need to see "who modified it".
