The path to IIS will be c:\inetpub\wwwroot\. There you'll find the webpage iisstart.htm. This is where you should place your web pages.

Set IIS Default Page

This is optional, but if you want to build a complete website, you might want to set the default page. To do that, In Control Panel click on the Administrative Tools icon.

In the Administrative Tools window, click on Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. In the window that appears, click on the Default Document icon.

There you'll see a list of documents in order of their priorities. In other words, if the document at the top of the list cant be found, it will look for the next document in the list. Highlight the name of the document that you want to be the default. Then in the right column, click on the Move Up arrow to move that document to the top of the list. You can also add the name of your own document and set it as the default document.
