New laptop/windows 8 help

DH kindly bought me a new laptop for Christmas. I'm not very techno minded and am struggling a bit!

On my old netbook I could have several windows open at the same time and the titles would be displayed along the bottom. I can have several windows open on this as well but I have to right click until a bar comes up at the top.

Basically I can't figure out how to see the other titles when I'm on a page. So I can't see, for instance, when someone has messaged me on FB.

Anyone know if I can do it somehow? There are online instructions (I think) but I haven't been brave enough to venture there yet...

I've not got a Windows 8 PC yet but on Windows 7, what you did was from the desktop, right click on a free area on the task bar. Then choose properties. Then for the option "Taskbar buttons", choose "Never combine"
