I'm using secureCRT to ssh to Linux based server.
I use "screen" command to keep my sessions alive.

On PC-A, start a new screen session named "test";
On PC-B, type screen -D -r test
Hopefully, I'd like to see the 'test' session detached on PC-A, and re-attached to PC-B.

I've created a session in screen. It produced some output. Now I want to see it. So I attached the needed session, but could only see output limited by the size of console size. If I scroll up I see previous console commands, not screens output. If I try to navigate using arrows then just arrow keys codes are inserted.

I use the screen program extensively. It has helped me tremendously by reducing the time spent in setting up session every day. However, now that I have >8 screens - I forget sometimes which screen I am in. Is there a way to find the name of the screen session that I am working in.
I'm running Debian 7.2 on a docked Dell laptop with two external screens.

I can't seem to take a screen shot with the menu open...
