Starting a command in an already-running screen session


I want to start a command in a screen session that is already running. I've tried the -X option and it doesn't seem to do anything. Can anyone give me some advice?

What are you trying to achieve? I don't follow.

Ctrl-A Ctrl-C will give you another screen window in which you
can start a new command what you don't need to background ...
is that what you're after?
