WiFi connection "mini" window: how to turn back on?

Hello. I am new. I have not found an answer in the forums or searching them for my question.

When disconnecting from WiFi, a "mini" window would appear on the upper right hand corner of the screen saying something like "you are now disconnected from Wifi."

Within that mini-window is hypertext saying "do not show this window again."
I accidentally clicked on that hypertext and now when I disconnect from the Wifi the mini window no longer appears.

How do I get that window to return? The window does appear when I am Connecting to Wifi, it disappears after the connection is made.

When I disconnect, the window does not appear. What must I do to have this "disconnected" mini window/message appear?

Welcome to the forum

That's a very good question! I'm not sure if this will resolve the issue but you might want to take a look at the solution marked with a green and white check mark here. Although it's for Ubuntu 12.10 (I'm assuming you're running a version of Ubuntu) and the question is about disabling the notifications, the window (dconf editor) and settings shown might allow you get the notification bubble back.

In Xfce and Fedora with Network Manager, locate the network manager applet icon in your taskbar, right-click it and make sure "Enable Notifications" is checked.
