I did explain in my previous reply. 

  1. To show a page in the browser or on a mobile app you need to create a screen.
  2. To organize and reuse screen logic you can create blocks, blocks only live as part of a screen or another block

This a very basic question, that if you follow free online OutSystems training will be explained.

Hi,

That is a very basic question that is answered in the first few training videos when you learn about outsystems.

A screen is the page shown in a browser or on your mobile app.

A block is a reusable screen part that can implement its own logic.

A screen or block can be composed using several blocks.
