Using Screen for background processes in Linux / Terminal

Open a new 'screen' instance


Once, in the screen, you can 'detach' (or close out of it) the screen by pressing

CTRL+A and then press D

To resume a screen, you typically do this:

screen -x

If you have more than one screen instance, it will tell you their IDs, in which case you can choose which one to resume

screen -r
