Prevent Creative Cloud Shortcut Icon in Windows Favorites?

I love my Creative Cloud subscription, the desktop app (generally) does what it has to do, it makes sense for it to automatically launch at logon... That's all fine.

But it does this one incredibly annoying thing where every time I restart the computer, it adds a shortcut to the Creative Cloud storage folder in my Windows Favorites bar. I can delete it, but then it's automatically created again the next time I restart, which is infuriating. There seemingly is no way to disable that exasperating behavior (I've been through the few options available). I would have tolerated it if the Creative Cloud desktop app's installer had added the icon once when the app was installed, but not re-create the icon at every restart!

Please tell me there's a way to prevent that icon from being created. I don't use the Creative Cloud storage, and even if I did I wouldn't want that icon to appear there all the time despite my continually deleting it.

Based on customer feedback Adobe engineering has created a registry entry which can be set to either show or hide this Creative Cloud Files shortcut and is unaffected by Creative Cloud app updates. Please see this article for more details: Remove Creative Cloud Files folder shortcut from the Navigation panel | Windows

Where did this discussion actually go? I cannot find the new post and I would like to know how to disable the desktop shortcut myself.

Lots of discussion on this thread.  Including answers, as ugly as they are

How do I remove the 'Creative Cloud Files' folder from my PC?
