7.3 Select

Command: select [n |-|.]

(C-a n, C-a ')
Switch to the window with the number n. If no window number is specified, you get prompted for an identifier. This can be a window name (title) or a number. When a new window is established, the lowest available number is assigned to this window. Thus, the first window can be activated by select 0; there can be no more than 10 windows present simultaneously (unless screen is compiled with a higher MAXWIN setting). There are two special arguments, select - switches to the internal blank window and select . switches to the current window. The latter is useful if used with screen’s -X option.
