I just got Windows Server 2012 Essentials installed on a VM and I would like to set up some web projects in IIS on this VM. But I can't seem to find how to get to it? When I remote to the machine with my admin account all I seem to have access to is the dashboard.

I understand that it comes already installed but where is it?

I have tried the suggestions found here and got nothing! The actual manager is no where to be found!

I removed it and reinstalled it again and made sure the management console was selected this time.
