Use the Advanced Settings dialog boxes to edit the properties for each of the following objects in IIS:
- Application pool
- Virtual directory
The Advanced Settings dialog box is useful when you want to edit a specific property or group of properties for an object without using an edit wizard or a dialog box, or when a property is not displayed in a wizard or dialog box.
If you want to change a default value for all application pools, sites, applications, or virtual directories, you can do so on the appropriate Defaults dialog box for any of these objects.
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 Advanced Settings dialog box to see more properties at the same time.
