Illustrator has a less known feature to hide artboard and background. I accidentally activated this with some keyboard shortcut. How do I go back to the normal view?
You turned on the "Transparent Grid". You can go to View → Hide Transparency Grid or hit Command/Ctrl+Shift+D.
If everything goes white and you want to see the defined artboards, hit Command/Ctrl+Shift+H.
