How to change the actions of top links in Magento 2

My Account --> customer/account to My Account --> customer/dashboard

You can achieve this by create a plugin of class Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Link.

First create a plugin for Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Link of function getHref(). Then on afterGetHref changes the dir of backup.

Define plugin in di.xml

Define plugin at a app/code/{Vendor}/{Modulename}/di.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Link">
        <plugin name="change_toplink_url" type="{VendorName}\{Modulename}\Plugin\AccountLinkPlugin" sortOrder="1" />

Plugin Class:

namespace {VendorName}\{Modulename}\Plugin;
use Magento\Framework\UrlInterface; 
class AccountLinkPlugin
 * @var UrlInterface
protected $urlBuilder;

public function __construct(
    UrlInterface $urlBuilder
    $this->urlBuilder = $urlBuilder;
    public function afterGetHref(
        \Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Link $subject,
        return $this->urlBuilder->getUrl('customer/account/dashboard');



You need to do di compile and cache flush in to active this plugin.
