Most of the time I just want to use TextEdit to write some temporary notes, and I want it as a plain text, so this is annoying for me

Luckily we can fix it, we just need to open Terminal app

defaults write com.apple.TextEdit NSShowAppCentricOpenPanelInsteadOfUntitledFile -bool false
defaults write com.apple.TextEdit RichText -bool false   
killall TextEdit

Next time you open TextEdit you will see only this, which was exactly what I wanted
