    Notifications comes with Mountain Lion OSX, if you swipe two fingers to the left or right, forgot which one it should come up, and the settings for it should be in the system preferences being called Notifications.

    :confused::confused::( Thats like not possible... Try going to the app store, see if you could get it from there...

    Do you have the other apps such as reminders, messages etc? Does everything else work? Facebook integration etc?

    Just doesnt make sense, sorry cant help more than that...

    You sure ML is installed and not just bought without being installed?

    You start w your fingers placed just off the trackpad to the right then swipe to the left continuing over the trackpad. That sounds confusing, hopefully that helps.

    Go to the Apple menu (top left of the screen) and click "About This Mac".

    The window that pops up should show the OSX version number that you're on. 10.7.X means Lion, 10.8.X means Mountain Lion.

    Then you haven't actually upgraded to Mountain Lion yet.

    thanks for all your help, it says on apple web site if i had bought my macbook pro on or before 26-7-12. i could claim a free upgrade to mountain lion, i purchased mine on the 16-7-12. so no free upgrade, i have had to purchase the mountain lion at £13.99, its just downloading now.

    You should qualify for the free upgrade. I think the up-to-date program actually started on June 11, so try registering for it. If you qualify you might be able to get a refund by calling Apple.
