# How do I get to know if my question has been commented or answered?

I'm new here and I don't know how things work here and don't have any knowledge about commenting or answering questions. How do I get to know if my question has been commented or answered?

Another way for this problem is to install the software of stackexchange for your device (phone or tablet with android operating system or IOS) and active notifications for this software to send you push notifications.
