How does accepting an answer work?

In Stack Overflow how do I put the big green check to the answer which I like the most?

I see it on answers to other people's questions, but can't work out how to do it for my own.

You can only do this on answers to your own question and then, as a new user only after a time limit has passed (I believe it is 15 minutes currently).

You simply click on the checkmark that appears next to the answer.
