Creative Suite writes a garishly long folder in my home directory, that doesn't belong there

After installing Creative Suite, my MacOS Sonoma home directory has the following contents:

 

Home.png

 

This is both inaesthetic and inappropriate. The other times developers wrote here (OCR software, typing tutor) they were clearly not sufficiently Mac savvy to realize they were breaking conventions. When a company as sophisticated as Adobe does this, I start having wild thoughts about the arrogance it takes to impose conventions that don't conform to prevailing norms. I'm pretty sure that if I trapsed into Adobe's lobby with soiled toilet paper trailing from my shoes, and set up a lawn chair, security would show me out. My home directory is my lobby.

 

Is there any way to override this installer preference in advance? I would like Adobe to reconsider this behavior.
