I don't know TeXnicCenter at all, but you should look for `options' or 
`settings' (or `edit settings' or ...).

Very generally, there are three kinds of accessing line numbers in editors:
1. You may find a `go to' function in some menu where you can enter the 
line number where to go to.
2. The file content window may have a column displaying the numbers of the 
lines displayed (to be activated in the settings).
3. The window may display somewhere the line number where the cursor is 
(plus the number of the character in the line). This may be in some "status 
line", and it may be necessary to *activate* displaying that "status line". 
The format of the line number may be cryptical, it may be necessary that 
somebody points at it with his finger so you realize that it's the line 
number ...
