Famous SharePoint URL’s & Locations

Some times you want to jump right to a specific system list, page or go to the edit mode in a SharePoint site. I wanted to list all the famous urls I used for the past years and ask you to tell me about any other ones you know to add it here in the list. Other have already contributed a bunch.

(Remember for SharePoint 2013, 2016 you might want to add “15”, “16” respectively after “/_layouts/” but if you don’t SharePoint will take care of that for you) .. Also some of these are turned off on Office 365 SharePoint online.
