9.6 Caption

Command: caption always|splitonly [string]
Command: caption string [string]

(none)
This command controls the display of the window captions. Normally a caption is only used if more than one window is shown on the display (split screen mode). But if the type is set to always, screen shows a caption even if only one window is displayed. The default is `splitonly'.

The second form changes the text used for the caption. You can use all string escapes (see section String Escapes). Screen uses a default of `%3n %t'.

You can mix both forms by providing the string as an additional argument.
