How do I increase the scrollback buffer in a running screen session?

Lets say I have a currently running screen session I am interacting with through putty. I've realized that the scrollback buffer is too small and would like to increase it without starting a new screen session.

Is there a way to do this?

Answer

The man page explains that you can enter command line mode in a running session by typing Ctrl+A, :, then issuing the scrollback <num> command.
