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.
