I have a IIS on PC which is on network.
In VS I have created simple web form and it runs perfectly, only in VS.
Then I need to use it outside VS.
Now it is only me to use it. For future I would like other access the site too over network from their browsers.
What steps should I do so I can use this site in pure browser without VS ?
What I am doing is
Goto IIS, right click Default Web Site
Add Virtual Directory, then give name App1 and point to physical location.
Then right click that App1 Virtual Directory and select Convert to Application.
Then I type in web browser
Are these steps correct ?

Assuming you have pointed IIS to the to the folder with your site files in them, where your "default.aspx" file exists, you also need to check: Make sure your site is assigned to an appropriate application pool for the framework it uses. You need to make
sure the site is running. And you need to know the port number the site is using. The address will usually be
http://localhost:nn/ , where nn is a port number. All these things can be done within IIS manager. In fact, within IIS Manager you can select your site from the Sites list and click the link under "Browse Website" on the
side panel to check if things are working properly.
Your bigger technical concern is having others access the site over a network from their browsers. That's not going to happen with a "localhost" address on your own PC. They'd need to use your computer's IP address, the correct port, and your firewall
needs to allow that.
