This post is intended to be a memo for myself on the basics of the linux tool screen, which allows to have several terminal screens opened simultaneously. This comes in very handy when working on a remove server over ssh.

Starts a new screen session with session_name:

screen -S session_name

Detach the current screen session (while being in it):

Cmd + a -> d

List all screen sockets:

screen -ls

Bring a screen session back:

screen -r session_name
