Accidentally made a screen within a screen - how to move it up one level?

I made a screen within a screen.

Is there a way to move the inner screen up one level so that it is at the same level as the first screen running from the shell?

Why don't you start from the beginning and tell us exactly what's happened?

from the shell I made a screen

then, i made another screen, but while I was inside the first screen

when I go back to the shell, I only see one screen running.

For the purpose of organization, I want to move that 2nd up front so i can see both screens running when i run the command "screen -ls"
