How can I prevent CC from automatically creating the "Creative Cloud Files" folder?

I'm using CC for syncing fonts and keeping my applications up to date. However I have disabled the file sync because I've found it very unreliable when syncing files between Mac and Windows.

I'm a bit annoyed that even though file sync is off CC keeps creating the "Creative Cloud Files" folder and shortcuts on my PC. When I delete the shortcut and the folder they reappear when I relaunch CC. Is there some registry hack to disable this behaviour?

Same here (on macOS): I enjoy using the Creative Cloud apps (Illustrator, Acrobat, etc.) but I am not interested by the cloud itself. I thought I had found the combination of preferences in the Creative Cloud app (and in System Prefs > Extensions) to prevent the Creative Cloud Files folder from recreating itself automatically, but no: every time I delete this (empty) folder, it's back the next time my Mac is restarted. That's really annoying. With Office 365, for example, once you set the OneDrive app such that the OneDrive folder is not created, it stays like that until you change the setting.
