Quick Tip – Opening a closed webpart in SharePoint 2007/2010

The below process might be a walk in the park to some of you out there but for the newbie SharePoint users I  thought I’d highlight just how its done

To open a closed webpart on a webpart page (which you might have closed by mistake or needed t hide for some reason)

This can be achieved by opening the page in SharePoint designer:


And Editing the file :


Once open view the page in split mode (preferably)


Right Click on the webpart:


And open the webpart properties menu:

which you’ll notice is the same as the menu in SharePoint itself (but cannot be accessed due to it )

Untick the close web part


Save and close the page

And it should now be available once more on the page.
