I was editing my mesh and I wanted to only see a part of my mesh, so I pressed alt+B to only show a selected area. However, I did ctrl+B and created a red rectangle on my screen (I don't know what it does).

Does anybody know how to get it off?

The red checkered box is a render region.
It's used to render only parts of your screen.

You can clear it with Ctrl+Alt+B

Or through View > View Regions
