Right near the top of the screen(1) man page, it says:

  By default, each command begins with a control-a (abbreviated C-a from
  now on), and is followed by one other keystroke.

To detach, type Control-a d; to reattach, type 'screen -r', perhaps with
a pid.tty.host argument as printed by 'screen -ls', or just 'screen -R'
to reattach the first session it finds.
