Setting PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "\033]0;address@hidden"' works outside screen, I was wondering if it possible to change it dynamically.

Make screen change the Xterm title to the current screen title as I switch screen windows,  Ctrl –a “  or Ctrl – a a  or Ctrl – a 1

I am not quite sure what you need but, if you just want to change the window title of putty you can set the variable PROMPT_COMMAND as you wish.

PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "\033]0;new_title\007"'

hope it helps.

Hello there guys, screen is just a time saving tool, I can’t thank you guys enough for how many times I got able to just re-attach my console and get back to all  my sessions.


I just had an idea and was wondering if it’s possible.



Can I change the PUTTY/Xterm Title Bar (window caption) accordingly to the Screen Window that I am ?


So every time I switch Window on Screen my (Xterm/Putty) caption gets changed to the current Screen Window Name.
