This can be done in a few ways. For at least xterm, you can get screen
to scroll with the terminal's scrolling mechanism (scroll bar,
shift-pgup, etc.) by adding the following line to your .screenrc
termcapinfo xterm ti@:te@
You might be able to get it to work for other terminals by replacing
"xterm" with the name of the terminal or with "*" to match all
You can also use screen's copy mode, entered with ^a [ (ctrl-a
followed by left/opening bracket) or ^a ESC
To scroll up and down, while in copy mode use ^u and ^d
To exit copy mode, press a key that doesn't have a function in copy
mode, like ESC
