I'm very happy with Putty running on my Windows machine and keeping all my terminal windows under GNU Screen in my server. However, I wonder if there's a version of Putty (or another software for that matter) that is Screen-aware and which lets me to organize and browse my windows opened under a Screen session. Maybe keeping every window in a separate Windows window, features for easy browsing between the windows, etc...

Thanks in advance.

You can launch several putty instances, and attach each one of them to the same screen instance (use the -x option). Then, within screen, create multiple windows; you will be able to switch to any of them from any of the open terminals ! this way you can have one terminal per virtual screen, or keep some others in the back, etc..
