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.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

There is a check box element right there. Just click it. – Tejs Sep 15 '11 at 20:24
you can only do that if it's your question. – Karoly Horvath Sep 15 '11 at 20:28

That's called "accepting an answer" and is possible if you asked the question.

It looks so:accept

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.
