IIS 7 provides a UI, IIS Manager, which lets you:
- Manage IIS and ASP.NET in one tool.
- View health and diagnostic information that
includes the ability to view currently running requests in real
- Configure user and role authorization for Web
sites and Web applications.
- Connect to a Web server, site, or application
remotely using HTTP.
Additionally, you can extend the UI to include your own custom functionality.
IIS Manager provides descriptions of all user interface (UI) elements on each feature page, dialog box, and wizard page within IIS Manager. To display this help, press the F1 key on the active feature page, dialog box, or wizard page.

If you have an Internet connection, you can browse the Windows Server 2008 Technical Library on Microsoft TechNet to see all available IIS 7 Help content for IT Administrators.

The task bar displays a Help icon that you can click to view Help about the IIS 7 user interface. The task bar appears at the top of every UI page.
Actions Pane Help
