I wanted to try out Acrobat DC. Together with the download of Acrobat I installed Creative Cloud. After testing Acrobat I deinstalled it together with die Creative Cloud Application. During my tryouts I never used the Creative Cloud storage but after the deinstallation the folder/shortcut still appeard in the sidebar of my file explorer.

 

I've already tried the 'Creative Cleaner Tool' to remove all software. Since my problem seems similar to this one I tried both shown solutions. Sadly both didn't work for me. It seems to me that the registry that the unPinCCF.reg tries to change is not the same anymore.

 

Is there a way to delete the folder/shortcut from the sidebar of the file explorer?

As you have uninstalled Creative Cloud, it shouldn't reappear.

Thanks Abambo for your answer, but I think there might has been a misunderstanding. I wasn't talking about the 'Creative Cloud Files' being in the quick access section. Somehow my folder showed up next to where OneDrive or other cloud provider apear.

It's outside of the 'quick access' section so I dont't have the option to just unpin it.
