Your goal as a WooCommerce entrepreneur is… to get paid!
We’ve already seen how to put Cart and Checkout on the same page to save your customers a step and go straight to the purchase page – but no matter if you still have a Cart page or not, you may be interested in hiding the “View Cart” button from the cart widget dropdown, so that customers can go straight to the Checkout page and convert.
Here’s a super quick snippet to achieve just that. Enjoy!
Please let me know in the comments if everything went as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting.

thanx but may it be not easier to just hide that part with a few CSS to diplay:none it?
On paper, yes. In theory, it’s better to disable it via PHP, so it does not load at all.
With CSS, it loads and then you hide it. And someone can always unhide it from Chrome Inspector / Firebug etc.
