Here's how I prefer to do it.  I use ^A e to turn on the caption line,
^A E to shut it off.

windowlist string "(%3n) %{..g}[%{..Y}%t%{..g}]%{..g}%=%f"
windowlist title "Num   Name"
bind E  caption splitonly "%{= Bw} (%2n) %{..g}[%{..Y}%t%{..g}] %{> h}"
bind e  caption always    "%{= Bw} (%2n) %{..g}[%{..Y}%t%{..g}] %{> h}"

Then I have a menu script that essentially does things like this:

screen -t ssh
