Is there somewhere you can view a list of all webparts embedded on a specific page?

I have taken over development of a SharePoint website and some pages have a ton of webparts, and I have no way of knowing the name of each webpart so that I can go in and modify them.

You can add ?contents=1 to the current page url to view a 'web parts maintenance page'. From there you should be able to see the web parts on the page, the type, and if they're open or closed.


When using the SharePoint object model you can get a webpartcollection using the webpartmanager. This has a "WebParts" property which returns a webpartcollection. Here you can get all the webparts properties.
