Summary of this tutorial:

The Visual editor is there for helping beginners write content on their site without having any HTML knowledge, it includes some basic text editing tools to get you started.

The only negative about this is the visual editor can add additional formatting that is not always needed, while this is not a large issue they can become annoying.

As users get more advanced they tend to go to the text editor to allow them to use HTML for creating the content on the site.

Under Users, Your Profile you would want to check the box that says “Disable the visual editor when writing” and update your profile.

Now when you update your profile you will no longer see the visual editor tab on your editor, preventing you from using it.

We do not have a recommended method at the moment for that, you could check if a plugin like adminimize has a custom method for hiding the editor: wordpress.org/plugins/adminimize/
