I use screen a lot for work. But when I want to see the history in Terminal, typing ^A-[ and then up/down arrow gets tedious in a heartbeat. I discovered recently that you can put the following command in the ~/.screenrc file in the machine where screen is run, and you’ll have the capability to scroll through the history.
