Create a Site Collection in SharePoint 2013

To create a Site Collection I am going to go to the Central Admin Home Page and
click on Create site collection under the Application Management heading.


From here I will fill in a Title and Description.  I also have the option of adding a managed path.


Next I will select the template I’d like to use and I can add site collection administrators.

Scrolling down brings me to the Quota Template drop down and the OK button.


After I click OK, SharePoint will create the Site Collection and present me with the following:


When I clicked on the link the box below appeard, and I clicked enable.  My screen shot is a little hazy.  This is asking if I want to enable the Microsoft Web Test Recorder 10.0 Helper add-on.


After clicking enable I am presented with my new Site Collection.
