If you are the original author of a document, it is up to you to accept the changes to make them permanent, or if you disagree, reject them.

Accept

Selecting the top portion of the Accept button will accept the current change and move to the next proposed change. By selecting the bottom portion of the Accept button, a drop down menu will open and give you the option to accept the change and move to the next proposed change or to accept all changes in the document.

Reject

RejectYou also have the option to reject the change. Highlight the change you would like to reject, then select Reject from the Changes section of the Review tab. Selecting the top portion of the Reject button will reject the current change and move to the next proposed change. By selecting the bottom portion of the Reject button, a drop down menu will open and give you the option to reject the change and move to the next proposed change or to reject all changes in the document. You do not have the ability to reject all of the comments in the document. You have to select each comment individually and select reject. This will cause the comment to disappear.

Accept or Decline ChangesIn our example, we will reject the change that we previously accepted above. Notice the strike through is no longer over the word "and". It removes the change that the other user made.
