I accidentally closed the panel that has a red circle (I dont know the name of it lol). I had to close everything and load the project again and untick the 'load UI' to restore that panel again. Is there a shortcut to open/close it similar to properties and toolbar panel?

blender's UI

I tried the answers from the duplicate but I'm talking about specifically the panel on the right side with the red circle on it. I'm just wondering if it has a shortcut button like the toolbar T and properties N panel.

    $\begingroup$ Actually your highlighted area consists of 2 Area types (called Outliner and Property Area) rather than one Panel. Related questions: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/8384/… and blender.stackexchange.com/questions/34174/… $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Very likely that you pressed Shift+Spacebar by accident and toggled the 3D view fullscreen. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Shaun, yes Shift+Spacebar will toggle full screen for any view area the mouse cursor is in. $\endgroup$

Just keep the cursor in the 3D View and press Shift+spacebar.
