I have been searching for a tool to reset IIS from Visual studio itself instead of going to the command prompt.

One of the tools available on VS marketplace is not supported by Visual Studio 2015.

So I have created a simple tool which can be added to the VS menu.

Download from here

You can copy the folder to Dev machine like below.


Now in VS go to Tools > External Tools 

Add new tool.


Select the iisreset.bat file from the unzipped folder in the Command.

The IISReset tool will be available from Tools menu as below.


When you click on it, IISreset will be done.
