I finally got tired of seeing the Visual Composer opens in a new window notice in wp-admin about activating, so I added the following to the functions.php opens in a new window of the project on which I’m working.

// Hide the Visual Composer message  add_action(      'admin_head',      function()      {          echo '<style> #vc_license-activation-notice { display: none; } </style>';      }  );
