QuerySting paramerters in the URL can help you edit pages where the edit button is missing (ex. SharePoint 2007 list views) or you need to throw away a web part that’s messing with your page from the web part maintenance view.

Function URL
Add Web Parts/Browse ToolPaneView=2
Add Web Parts/Search ToolPaneView=3
Edit Mode mode=edit
View mode mode=view
Shared view PageView=Shared
Personal view PageView=Personal
Maintenance view contents=1

You can combine some of the urls ex Edit personal view: …aspx?PageView=Personal&mode=edit
