someone created a MS Form and embeded it on a sharepoint online page. The form is giving an error now but no one knows who created it and I can only find the URL to the form, nothing else.
How do I find the owner or take ownership so we can work on the form?

I just used Edge (Chromium) developer tools, open the network section of this, paste in the url to the form and hit enter. Once the page fails to load, look through the request, if you don't have access you'll see a red 403 error. In this request you should see the form ID/users/USERID
That userID is the AzureAD object ID so you can use it to work out who owns the form. I've uploaded a screenshot that will hopefully help.

3 cheers to toszypul for such a great find!
@steviebee here is a way to Inspect the Network trace. This works in Chrome and Edge (and probably any other Chromium based browser).
Note: if the Inspect window is small enough, Network may be hidden in the >> menu
Browse to https://forms.office.com/Pages/DesignPage.aspx?origin=shell#FormId=<FormID> again
You can give this .har file any name you want and save it anywhere you want - the file won't be needed for very long
To convert the AAD ID to an actual name/group, toszypul recommended Microsoft Graph, but I was able to just open up Azure AD, select groups, and search by that AAD ID. I haven't tested to see if that also works with users, but I'd assume so.

@Gary Schultz Actually ever since determining that the F12 Developer tool in either Chrome or Edge was the easiest option to obtain a network trace that should track an event with the described information that would contain either a user or group that "owns" a Form, @toszypul 's procedure described in earlier post has worked as described 99% of the time.

A little trick my boss just showed me. Go to the URL of the form in your browser. and use f12 - ownerId is in there this URL explains it Who created this Microsoft Form? | It's Partly Cloudy (itspartlycloudy.com) @Jason_B1025
