You can simply add this line in your default.xml file

<move element="my-account-link" destination="mycustom4.div" after="header.links" />

After adding this line you need to make some CSS changes there.

Another solution

If you do not need My Account link for Guest user then you can use below code.

Add this lines in your default.xml file

<referenceBlock name="my-account-link" remove="true" />

<referenceContainer name="header.container">
    <block class="Vendor\Module\Block\Account\Link" name="my-account-link-custom" after="header.links" template="Magento_Theme::header/myaccount_custom.phtml" />

And Create one Block file here


Content for this file is ...

namespace Vendor\Module\Block\Account;

use Magento\Customer\Block\Account\SortLinkInterface;

class Link extends \Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Link
    protected $_customerUrl;
    protected $httpContext;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template\Context $context,
        \Magento\Customer\Model\Url $customerUrl,
        \Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context $httpContext,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->_customerUrl = $customerUrl;
        $this->httpContext = $httpContext;
        parent::__construct($context, $customerUrl, $data);

    public function getIsCustomerLoggedIn(){
        return $this->httpContext->getValue(\Magento\Customer\Model\Context::CONTEXT_AUTH);

And you need to add template file here..


Content for this file is..

<?php if($block->getIsCustomerLoggedIn()): ?>
        <a href="<?php echo $block->getHref(); ?>"><?php echo __("My Account"); ?></a>
<?php endif; ?>

After changing this please run below commands

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento cache:clean
php bin/magento cache:flush

Hope this will help you!
