Use the Advanced Settings dialog box to change the properties of the following objects in IIS:

The Advanced Settings dialog box is useful when you want to modify a specific property or group of properties for an object without using an edit wizard or a dialog box, or when a property does not display in a wizard or dialog box.


If you want to change the default value for all application pools, Web sites, Web applications, or virtual directories, you can use the appropriate Defaults dialog box for any one of these objects to do this.

For information about a specific property, select the property in the Advanced Settings dialog box and view the information that displays in the property description pane underneath the property grid. You can make the property description pane larger by clicking the bar between the property grid and the property description pane, and then dragging upward. You can also resize the entire Defaults dialog box to see more properties at the same time.
