Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Notifications not displayed

Hey, I'm using Windows 7 for a week and I haven't get used to the menu yet. I have a very stupid problem but it's very annoying. When I turn on/off sound, Wi-Fi ets. there is no notification of the action on the desktop. I can't find a menu from where to correct this.
