How to Remove Welcome Panel From WordPress Admin Dashboard?

Do you want to remove the welcome panel from the Admin Dashboard in WordPress?

WordPress adds a welcome panel to the dashboard page of the WordPress admin area. It helps new users or beginners find their way as it hosts important link shortcuts to perform different tasks.

As users become more familiar with the WordPress dashboard, these links and panels become less useful. Also, it pushes down other important dashboard widgets and makes them less noticeable.

However, there are options to disable it from Screen Options or dismiss it, but there are some cases where you want it to be disabled permanently.


You can use the below code to disable the welcome panel from the WordPress admin dashboard.

 * Remove the Welcome Panel from the WordPress Admin Dashboard
 * @return void
function maverick_remove_welcome_panel_wordpress()
    remove_action('welcome_panel', 'wp_welcome_panel');
add_action('admin_init', 'maverick_remove_welcome_panel_wordpress');
