The console – which has two modes – is activated/toggled using the tilde key (link), which normally is placed to the left of the 1 key and above the Tab key. However some keyboard-layouts may have it placed elsewhere.
The first mode of the console, is reading mode. Note that the PageUp and PageDown keys will scroll up/down in the console lines.
The second mode, is the command mode, where you can type in commands – among those the quit command, to quickly shutdown Farming Simulator, if in case something went wrong when loading a map/mod.
Pressing the tilde key a third time, closes the console.
