Linux: How to scroll back up in GNU screen

Screen is a handy little thing that lets you run an extra persistent console in the background which stays active after you disconnect.

However, scrolling back up the screen buffer is a tad more tricky.

After using it on and off for a few years, I've finally run into the need to scroll up to see what's in the buffer.

To do that:

  • Press Ctrl+A
  • then [
  • And use J or K to move up and down (or the arrow keys)
