I would like to know what is the shortcut you type in the Command Prompt (or is it RUN window) to start IIS?
I've installed IIS by going to ControlPanel>Programs & Features>Turn Features On/Off> and installed ISS. I've chosen to install only what is related to ASP.NET.
Now... there is apparantly a short cut I can type in to get right to IIS? I tried inetmgr but that won't work.
Please help!

At the command prompt, type net stop WAS and press ENTER; type Y and then press ENTER to also stop W3SVC.

To restart the Web server, type net start W3SVC and press ENTER to start both WAS and W3SVC.

Oops I misunderstood your question.  Inetmgr is the proper command.  You can look at the properties of the shortcut in your start menu to verify.

Is it in C;\windows\system32\inetsrv ?

If it's not there you probably didn't install "IIS Managment Console" from the add/remove windows features.

@Jason987 - read the original question. I asked if there was a shortcut based on what I had already loaded. I wasn't asking to load additional programs

I read the original question.  I provided you with the information necessary to complete the objective you were trying to attain.

In the future you should say something like "how can I run a program I don't have installed" so people can simply tell you "you can't".

mythology8:  The IIS management console (the long program name for inetmgr) while part of the IIS suite is a separate package that you must install to use.  If you want to use "inetmgr" you must go to ControlPanel>Programs & Features>Turn Features On/Off> and drop into 'Internet Information Services>Web Managment Tools>' and select "IIS Management Console".  

"inetmgr" is not a shortcut it is the name of the application that is installed above.
