Installing IIS in Windows 10

Step 1: In Windows 10, navigate to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off.

Step 2: Expand the Internet Information Services node and make sure the following features are selected.

  • IIS Management Console

  • .NET Extensibility 4.7

  • Application Initialization

  • ASP.NET 4.7

  • ISAPI Extensions

  • ISAPI Filters

  • Default Document

  • Static Content

Step 3: Click OK to install the selected features.

After IIS is installed, a Default Web Site (with port 80) is automatically created.

We will use the Default Web Site (with port 80) in this tutorial. You can also create new websites with different port numbers (instructions are provided here).

Step 4: Open a Web browser and input "http://localhost:80/" in the address bar.

If the IIS welcome screen displays, the Default Web Site is working properly.
