When I use screen and I close an emacs window, the prompt remains at the bottom of the screen where than popping to where the prompt was before I opened emacs. How can I fix this? It only happens when I use screen. I don't like it, because it sometimes looks like I'm still in emacs, and I can't see my previous commands.
Here is the solution Using screen, commands like less and man don't clear the screen afterwards
Use GNU screens
Here is another post that had your problem gnu-screen-clearing-on-vim-less-etc-exit. They solved it as above.
