When you Italicize a word, it means that you make the letters slant at a 15 degree angle. In word processing it means you click on a button in the menu to Italicize the text you have highlighted. The icon for Italicize is a capitol letter I that looks like this I
In word processing you can also Italicize text that you have highlighted by simply holding down the Ctrl button first (don't let go), then gently tap the letter I then release both the Ctrl key and the letter I key.

Making a letter or text Italicized in your document makes it more noticeable or more prominent by pointing out it's importance.
