Opening WebPart Maintenance Page

Shortcut to open Instead of going to the Edit Properties form of the page, we can easily open the WebPart Maitenance page by just adding the following query string to the page URL
 So, if your page URL is 'http://kar/pages/default.aspx' then after appending the query string it should look like ' http://rams/pages/default.aspx?contents=1'

Using this approach, we can open the webpart maintenance page for all the forms pages (like /pages/forms/allitems.aspx?contents=1).

But its not safe to remove or add any webparts in these pages, as they may effect the normal funcitonality.

This approach works on both MOSS 2007 and SPS 2010.
