Display all windows in a table for visual window selection. If screen was in a window group, screen will back out of the group and then display the windows in that group. If the -b option is given, screen will switch to the blank window before presenting the list, so that the current window is also selectable. The -m option changes the order of the windows, instead of sorting by window numbers screen uses its internal most-recently-used list. The -g option will show the windows inside any groups in that level and downwards.
