I want to open the URL in the same window I'm actually using the lightning component inside vf page so I can't use "Navigate To Url" as it only works in one.app container. It’s supported in Lightning Experience and Salesforce1 only. that's the reason I'm using Window.open is there is a way I can open the URL in the same window the way we can do this using "Navigate to URL".

handleOpenNewWindowWithRecordId : function(component, event, helper){
    console.log('called');
   window.open("/006/o");
}

and if i use window.open("/006/o","_self"); if just refresh the component and open the url there only enter image description here

    You would need to pass the listener function as an attribute from VF to aura component or VF page can listen an event send by aura component, an example here- How to navigate in lightning out?

    hmm, should have mentioned in the question originally that this page is embedded in standard layout. Maybe try: window.open("/006/o","_parent");, I would still handle the actual navigation in Visualforce page after listening to navigation event from the component..

Change your code to:

handleOpenNewWindowWithRecordId : function(component, event, helper){
    console.log('called');
   window.open("/006/o","_self");
}

Appending _self should force the page to open in the current tab/window.
