I'm simply trying to add a web part to a page for some test development, but I get an error dialog saying, "The file is currently checked out or locked for editing by another user."

Is there somewhere in the SharePoint 2010 administration where I can see all checked out files (and who has it checked out) and force check-ins?

All I can find with Google are code examples for listing the checked out files, but I feel like this should be available somewhere for admins...
