Accessing Consoles
Additional differences appear in certain screens; notably the custom partitioning process is very different from other Linux distributions. These differences are described in each screen's subsection.
Additionally, elements in each screen can be toggled using their respective shortcuts. These shortcuts are highlighted (underlined) when you hold down the kbd:[Alt] key; to toggle that element, press kbd:[Alt + _X_pass:attributes[{blank}]], where _X_ is the highlighted letter.
Additionally, you can use the [command]#autostep --autoscreenshot# command in a Kickstart file to capture and save each step of the installation automatically. See xref:../appendixes/Kickstart_Syntax_Reference.adoc#sect-kickstart-commands-autostep[autostep (optional) - Go Through Every Screen] for details.

Consoles and Logging During the Installation
Each screen in the graphical interface contains a `Help` button. This button opens the [application]*Yelp* help browser displaying the section of the _{PRODUCT} Installation Guide_ relevant to the current screen.
If you choose text mode installation, you will start in virtual console 1 ([application]*tmux*), and switching to console 6 will open a shell prompt instead of a graphical interface.
If your system does not have the ability to use the graphical mode, you can:
In addition to displaying diagnostic information in [application]*tmux* windows, [application]*Anaconda* also generates several log files, which can be transferred from the installation system. These log files are described in xref:Troubleshooting.adoc#sect-troubleshooting-log-files[Log Files Generated During the Installation], and directions for transferring them from the installation system are available in xref:Troubleshooting.adoc#sect-troubleshooting-transferring-logs[Transferring Log Files from the Installation System].
In [application]*Anaconda* you are only required to select your language and locale first, and then you are presented with a central screen, where you can configure most aspects of the installation in any order you like. This does not apply to all parts of the installation process, however - for example, when installing from a network location, you must configure the network before you can select which packages to install.
In general, there is no reason to leave the default graphical installation environment unless you need to diagnose an installation problem.
Installation in text mode follows a pattern similar to the graphical installation: There is no single fixed progression; you can configure many settings in any order you want using the main status screen. Screens which have already been configured, either automatically or by you, are marked as `[x]`, and screens which require your attention before the installation can begin are marked with `[!]`. Available commands are displayed below the list of available options.

Introduction to Anaconda
It is not possible to configure custom partitioning; you must use one of the automatic partitioning settings. You also cannot configure where the boot loader will be installed.
Limits of interactive text mode installation include:
