Change Default Web Site in IIS 7

Good day Experts -
Windows 7 sets c:\inetpub\wwwroot as the default web site when configuring IIS.  I would like to move this default directory on my (Win 7 Pro) system up one level, to c:\inetpub.  I've Googled my fingerprints off and am not having any success in finding how to do this.  Can someone assist me with the steps and let me know if there are any particular gotchas that I should beware of ii I do it?  Thanks!

In the iis manager GUI select your website (default web site) and on the right hand site you will see "Advanced Settings" click on that and select Physical path.

No idea why it is in "Advanced settings" it is surely one of the most basic things to do the directory where the content is. :)
