I’ve used Photoshop for years and have been using Lightroom. Both are great products but lately Adobe has been including a link to Creative Cloud Files in Windows Explorer. I’m not even sure what use it is. Maybe it’s useful for some people but I find it annoying. Here’s how you remove the link in Windows Explorer.
Find “Creative Cloud Files”
Look for System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree
It’s value is most likely set to 1. Change it to 0.
Close and re-open Windows Explorer. Creative Cloud Files should be gone.
You might have to reboot.
