How to switch back to classic TinyMCE Wordpress editor?

People like myself who have been using the classic TinyMCE WordPress editor find Gutenberg a bit too much. It is more complex and very annoying too. I have no idea about other, but I desperately want to switch back to the classic TinyMCE WordPress editor and disable Gutenberg.

Install Classic Editor plugin: By installing this plugin you get two options, either you can always use the classic TinyMCE WordPress editor which will disable the new Gutenberg editor completely or the other option is you can switch between classic TinyMCE WordPress editor and Gutenberg editor as per your needs.

Always use the classic TinyMCE WordPress editor is the default option in the classic editor plugin, so you don’t have to do anything after installing the plugin if you want to completely disable the Gutenberg editor for the new WordPress 5.0 or up.

But if you also want to use the Gutenberg editor WordPress 5.0 you can go to Settings > Writing, and find “Classic editor settings.” If you tick the box “Do not replace the editor,” you will get the option to switch between the classic TinyMCE WordPress editor and Gutenberg editor.
