The -t option sets the window title. The -list option lists the currently 
running screen sessions. Each screen session can contain multiple windows. 

If you want to see the list of screen windows use the "windowlist" command 
with the key sequence:
Ctrl+A "

Screen sessions can also be given a name with -S option.
