Hello This happens to me quite often

and As I'm new to AE, I always started all over again

and like this, it only leaves with a cropped image

deleting the background, when I'm supposed to have a transparent background.

 

Going back (Control+Z) Doesn't work in this case.

Does anyone know how to go back to my very recent screen monitor?

You are just in layer view - that is why you can't see your composition. Just toggle through to composition view   And as Mylenium said - you shoud learn some basics of AE. It's much easier to work that way.

I'm not clear what you are trying to say. Apparently you're in the layer viewer working with a tiny sprite image zoomed in at 25%. You might want to brush up on the basics.

I just repeated what Myllenium said and also showed you  on a screenshot exactly what you need to do to return to composition view so if that was rude - sorry.
