Remove the loading screen during boot

Greetings, fellow members of this forum! I am pleased to introduce myself as a new member who has recently joined this community. I would like to take this opportunity to express my positive experience with Garuda Linux, which has proven to be an excellent operating system for all my academic endeavors.

I have enjoyed customizing the various elements in the KDE version of the desktop, enabling me to tailor the interface to my liking. However, I have encountered a minor issue in my pursuit of a personalized system.

I would be grateful for any guidance on how to bypass this loading screen and view the textual output by default. Thank you for your anticipated assistance.
