Handy SharePoint 2013 Administrative URLs Reference

As most of SharePoint Professionals, I have been keeping the list of handy URLs to navigate through my day to day tasks. Recently I have come across this blog article – Famous SharePoint URLs and Locations and felt like everyone has their own go-to list of URLs. This article has the excellent list of famous SharePoint URLs, but one thing I felt it was missing was whether they would work for Site Collection or Sub Site.

Here is the list of all the handy SharePoint URLs I have been keeping track of. Let me know if I have missed anything or any of your favorites.
