I can't remember if when I installed Creative Cloud for the first it was pinned on the explorer's navigation pane.
But I think it did.

I started saving my projects on the cloud, but I noticed that the Creative Cloud Files wasn't pinned on navigation pane like the other clouds I have installed.
So every time I have to go through My Computer\Users\Carlos\Creative Cloud Files to save. I pinned it to quick access, but I wanted it to be like the other clouds.

When I search on Google how to add it to the navigation pane I only find how to remove it because seems like no one likes it.
And when I try to do the reverse process of removing, I can't find the System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree registry (because it does not exist).

Was this option removed because everyone hated it or is there another way I can add the Creative Cloud Files to my navigation pane?

And how was this supposed to help us add the folder to our navigation panel?  I tried to reverse the steps in the article that says how to REMOVE the files and it was useless, when all i wanted is to add them.  is there an article on how to ADD the CC folder to the navigation panel?

Did you ever receive any information on adding the Creative Cloud folder to the navigation panel? I have the same problem. It use to be there, but it dissappeared after my computer crashed one time and I have not been able to get it back. I went as far as uninstalling and re-installing all of my Creative Cloud apps and the desktop app as well, but the folder still did not come back. This is the only place on the web that I could find that even came close to addressing the problem.

I'm not sure if this helps but the only way i was able to have mine show up was doing a search for the folder. Mine was C:\Users\MyName\Creative Cloud Files

 

I went up one directory then right clicked Creative Cloud Files and added it to quick access. It still doesn't appear like it used to but it's the best i could do

Adobe support can't help, they've been trying for 4 years. I found the solution myself. More than 10 people from Adobe support tried to help me. I pay for the adobe package, and I had to help myself... I don't know what I'm paying for ... 
Working solution. Only the icon is missing:

For a long time, this post was a scam as the problem was not resolved by Adobe.
