Hi everyone, I'm trying to adjust some colours of my footage and when I go to the 'Colour' editing screen I loose the vision so if I make adjustments to the exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, whites, blacks or any other type of colour grading I actually can't see what I'm doing because there is no preview screen of the vision being manipulated in real time.  I can make some guesses then move over to any of the other screens (Editing, Effects, Audio, Graphics) and see what I've done but there's clearly something wrong.  A person can't grade effectively if they can't see what they're doing.  I am praying someone will know how to guide me back to having a preview screen which I had once upon a time.  Thank you in advance.

What do you mean with "there's no preview screen"?If it's completely not there, you should reset your color workspace by going to Window > Workspaces > Reset to saved layout.

In the Color workspace the Program monitor is part of the layout, so I'm having trouble understanding the problem? You see the changes there, unless of course Global fx Mute is toggled on or you've set the Bypass Lumetri toggled to on.
