Three things to note before I ask my question:
Confused already? You should be. I don't know why there are so many different places to save something, but onward with my question.
So let's say I started an Illustrator file and saved it locally to my machine. Later on, I save a copy of it to my "Creative Cloud Files" folder on my machine (because I literally don't know how else to get it on the cloud at this juncture. Enlighten me if you can.) It WILL NOT show up through the Desktop App in "Cloud Documents," but it DOES show up via the web version under "Synced Files."

And then there is a Cloud system/space for Acrobat files.

On my local hard drive, I have a Creative Cloud folder which syncs to my Creative Cloud storage space and other devices when I connect them. Depending on size, it may take a while for all your Creative Cloud folder contents to show up in your synced files folder. Make sure your Creative Cloud desktop app is logged-in and synced to the cloud.
This Adobe help article explains a bit more.
Thanks for attempting to clarify, but this doesn't address my question. I understand the difference between cloud docs vs. synced files. My issue is a navigational one.
"Any way I can get that "Creative Cloud Files" folder to show up in the Desktop App? It's stupid to have to launch the Desktop App for some files and then launch a web browser for other files."
I'm convinced the answer is no at this point.
If it means changing the UI, submit your Creative Cloud feature request below where the product team will see and prioritize it with other requests. To bolster your case for this, explain why you feel it's essential to workflow. https://creativecloud.uservoice.com/
