How to get to the web part maintenance page when your web part page fails?

Sometimes we get stuck with a webpart that crashes on load. And it won’t take you to the webparts maintenance page but will take you to an error page. The way out is to append your page url with querystring ” ?contents=1 “.

For example :  http://MyPortal/Pages/Default.aspx?contents=1

which will take you to http://MyPortal/_layouts/spcontnt.aspx?&url=%2fPages%2fDefault.aspx which is the default web parts maintenance page.
