SharePoint 2010 - Personalizing Pages
This article explains the concept of personalizing site pages in SharePoint.
On some pages the site contributors can add their own Web Parts to create a personal view of the page. For example, a Web Part can be added to a page and viewable by only you. When you personalize a page, others will continue to view the public version or the shared version, or their own personalized version. Once you personalize a page, you'll have the option to view either your personal version or the shared version.
You can only personalize pages that contain WebParts. The User Options menu displays that option on eligible pages.
To switch back to the public page from a personalized page, select Show Shared View from the User Options menu.
If you decide you no longer want a personal view of the page, you can remove it by selecting Reset Page Content from the User Options menu. You can always create another personalized view of the page at any time.
