How can I easily force the SharePoint Web Part Maintenance Page?

Append ?contents=1 to your querystring.  Example: http://www.foo.com/default.aspx?contents=1 Try it.  It’s cool.  Thanks Shane Young for pointing this out in our Survival class.  🙂
 
We were talking in class about deleting closed web parts… it’s a pain to try to get to the UI where you can delete "closed web parts."  I find that most page perf issues I see are related to bad web parts that are actually closed. 
 
I’m not a fan of any closed web parts.  I think it’s a poor feature.  Just my 2 cents.  The idea of closing web parts for private views… just didn’t work like it was designed and has more downsides than up.

I LOVE traveling our little planet. In my quest to visit every country in the world I've got about 35 UN countries left! I'm not just country hopping, but looking for the most immersive cultural experiences and capturing them as photos and videos. Yes, I'm also a geek. I've been recognized as a Microsoft Regional Director, a community leadership award. When not traveling, I'm in paradise in sunny southern California as I'm a Senior IT Manager at Blizzard Entertainment.
