When on the window list, you can do a <C-A>' (single quote) and screen will
prompt you for the window number. 

So if you have more than 10 (0-9) windows, you can go directly to window
10 (11.. 12..) just hitting:

| <C-A>"
| <C-A>'
| Switch to window: 10
| <Enter>

Not sure if/how this works if you have more than  c. 20 windows..
