how do you cycle through screens with keystrokes?

Hey all,

I know to create a screen you use "screen", i know to detatch my screen I do ctrl+a+d

I was wondering if there are any ctrl+____ keystrokes to cycle through all of your screens, kind of like alt+tab in a windows manager

You can use "CTRL+A 0-9" to select a specific screen.
"CTRL+A n" switches to the next screen.

Ctrl+a, n
man screen has a list of default key bindings and tells you how to change them if you want to.
