.screenrc file resides in your home folder which is
Opening multiple default screen windows when `screen` starts:
In this case 2 default windows with the first one at the bash prompt and the second one starting the python prompt.
Enter the following one after the other in your
screen -t Shell 1 bash screen -t Python 2 python
Selecting the 0th window on screen launch, if multiple windows open:
Go to the screen number mapped with that character:
Bind a character to the index of the screen window pane.
In this case bind character
j to window index number 1 and so on. Use it by typing
<Ctrl-a> j to go to Window pane 1.
bind j select 1 bind k select 2 bind l select 3
v to vertical split of window and
h to horizontal split of the window.
bind v split -v bind h split -h
The above helps create regions on your main window splitting it vertically and horizontally when used.
Create a Vertical split by using Screen Command Key + v
Command Key in our case is Ctrl-a, so let’s press Ctrl-a and then v
This is what it yields.
And to split the Window region horizontally, press Command Key + h.
So with Ctrl-a + h, the below is what it yields
If you wish to delete of kill the regions created by the vertical and horizontal split just type your main
Command character and
Shift+x like so. In this case the
screen command character key is
Ctrl-a and upper case x.
