Here is an excellent Super Simple Screen Set created, for educational purposes, by Graham Waterworth.

Does it work with a Ethernet ESS controller and Mach3?

The screenset has nothing to do with the motion controller, so any screen will work with Mach3 with any controller. Where you run into problems is if the screen uses custom macros. Most chinese controllers, and some others, do not run macros properly, as they don't support all Mach3 functions properly. This is typically an issue with probing and auto zero macros.

Thanks Gerry I have the one I purchased from you  but this may be a  little easier to see the screen in the shop not wearing my readers!   I wish yours had colors for the buttons, Red for Stop and etc.

Downloaded the .zip file, copied to Mach3 main folder,  unzip start M3. View install Screenset and only parts of the new screen show up??  It works as I can Reset (just guessing at buttons no text)  jog and so on.  What am I doing wrong??

OK got it loaded and working.  But the Homing does not work right and some of the pull down windows like Motor Tuning do not work.  So it came from a school... oh well it look nicd on to something else.
