Hi if I have a couple lightweight shelves I want to put up, do I have to use the anchors if I am screwing into a beam still? Are the anchors only for when a beam is not available?
Various anchors are used for Drywall, Plaster walls, Masonry, Thin wood like on hollow core doors (e.g. mounting a clothes hook), and others.

Not all of these require anchors because there are special types of screws that do not need anchors
some examples

Or Wall-Dogs

In general, If there is solid wood backing then anchors are not needed.
