How to change application pool of a website from IIS?

While you add a website from IIS Manager, you’ll get an option to select the application pool. In case you want to change the application pool later, you can modify the website properties and change the application pool from IIS. Please note that If you've chosen WebsitePanel to be installed in your VM, it is recommended that you change the application pool only from WebsitePanel.
