You need to modify your ~/.screenrc if you don't have one you can copy it with:

cp /etc/screenrc ~/.screenrc

and then add the following line.

caption always "%{rw} * | %H * $LOGNAME | %{bw}%c %D | %{-}%-Lw%{rw}%50>%{rW}%n%f* %t %{-}%+Lw%<"

You can change the caption to your personal needs. Therefor you should read the GNU Screen manual especially the string escape chapter.

An alternative to GNU Screen is Byobu, it is an already configured Screen, may be you should take a look at it, if you want GNU Screen. You can find install it with

sudo apt-get install byobu 

And of cause there is tmux which is like GNU Screen with less glitches and it always shows a caption. But tmux has different key bindings and if you are used to screen you will need some time to adapt. You can install it with

sudo apt-get install tmux
