Is there an interface separate from the regular IIS manager?

When I search on IISExpress I find only a link to a folder full of logs related to IISExpress sites that had been spawned by Visual Studio.

The management of IIS Express is the command line files located in c:\Program Files\IIS Express or c:\Program Files (x86)\IIS Express

Here's a little more about it.

There isn't an equivalent to the normal IIS7 control panel that I'm aware of, but when IIS Express is running there is usually a management tool that appears in the system tray that will let you do things like shut down or remove sites or recycle processes.
