Do you want to mount it once or auto mount it? For mounting it once:

1.First create a directory where u want to mount it.

sudo mkdir /media/windows

  1. Now you have to find which partition is the NTFS one by using:

    sudo fdisk -l

  2. If your NTFS partition is for example /dev/sdb1 to mount it use:

    sudo mount -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222 /dev/sdb1 /media/windows

  3. To unmount simply do:

    sudo umount /media/windows

If you want to have it mounted automatically check this link
