You can enter the scrollback mode with Ctrl-a-Esc or Ctrl-a-[. There you
can move around with the usual navigation keys.
Great. Just tried it out. This is very useful to me. Thanks.

I don't think you can merge running screen sessions, but you can list
active sessions by 'screen -ls', and then start each session with
'screen -r <nameofsession>'.

Is this present in the TODO list for the future versions of screen or is this something very trivial and not necessary?
