There's a 'check' thing (like a v) next to the answers which you can click on. When it turns green it means you accepted that answer. Hope that helps :)

how to accept

To the left each response, there should be a large outline of a check symbol. Logged in as the person who posted the question, you can click on that check, and it will turn green. That indicates that you have accepted the answer to which the check mark pertains.

Clicking on another transparent check will undo your previous acceptance and reassign it.
