In Wuthering Waves, you can get the Shadows of the Past Exploration quest by completing another quest called Hidden Dangers in Peaceful Life. You can start it in Jinzhou at the Ministry of Development office by talking to an NPC named Xiaoyu.

Once you complete said quest, the Shadows of the Past quest will get added to your quest log, which you can access by pressing the ‘J’ key. The first objective of the quest asks you to wait for Xiaoyu’s Message. Usually, changing the in-game time via the Clock icon on the Terminal page progresses such objectives. For the Shadows of the Past quest, it does nothing.
