This is covered in the manual, but since this is a question with an easy
answer, here we go:  you can put all sorts of commands into your
~/.screenrc file (in your home directory), like

  # for a "bash" shell in window 0
  # screen -t shell 0 bash
  # for "dfrun" in the next available window
  screen -t dataflex dfrun myprogram
  # and so on

The "-t dataflex" gives "dataflex" to the windows title.  You can leave
it out.  If you give a small number after the title, it will become the
number of the window.
