Closed Web Part Gallery

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 allows you to close web parts on a page. This is a good alternative to deleting them, in case you think you'll need them back later. Closed web parts are stored in a page's "Closed Web Parts Gallery." Unfortunately, finding this gallery isn't very intuitive. Here's where to find it:
  1. Edit the page
  2. Click "Add a web part" inside one of the web part zones
  3. When the dialog opens, click the "Advanced Web Part gallery and options" link
  4. You'll see an option for the "Closed Web Part Gallery"
Just choose the web part you closed previously, and it'll be restored to your page.
