Can you provide more details?

bind h exec /usr/bin/htop

works for me to start htop and returns when I quit.

Years ago I had a screenrc with a key binding that allowed using the exec

It would drop me to a sub-shell and return when finished.

Despite all attempts to duplicate it from google examples and poor recall,
I have had only failures.

Can someone help me please with a sample keybinding and/or other info that
would do this?



You can also bind to open a new screen with a command and have it
close when you quit:

bind z screen /usr/bin/htop
