Exclamation Changing login mode (Redhat 7.3)

I've just installed Redhat 7.3 on my computer and during the instal I chose the option of a GUI logon screen. Since then I've decided that I would like to go back to the text login.

Does anyone know if this can be done (without having to re-install) and if so how?

to this:
That should do it.
