screen bind keys

I am using GNU Screen as a terminal multiplexer.

I am using screen as long as i remember my self using ssh.
I am not against tmux, I just really dont have an opinion on it.


So this is for all you people that are using screen and you want a quicker way to switch from one terminal to another.

Open your .screenrc and just add the below lines:

bindkey ^[[1;2D prev
bindkey ^[[1;2C next

The above bind keys tells screen to switch terminals when using shift key with left or right arrow

⇧ + ←
⇧ + →
