I believe the "status-bar" you are referring to is controlled by the
'caption' command.

`prefix :caption splitonly` will hide it unless the screen has been

`prefix :caption always` brings it back.

As an aside, the manual suggests that the caption can be placed at the
top or bottom of the screen by giving `:caption` an extra argument.

When I run `prefix :caption top always`, I am greeted with this error

    usage: caption always|splitonly|string <string>

This is in Screen version 4.09.00 (GNU) 30-Jan-22.
