What the heck is this "Adobe Illustrator 2021 (Other)" folder that was added to the macOS launchpad

I just updated my creative cloud apps (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere) and in my macOS launchpad is a folder titled "Adobe Illustrator 2021 (Other)," it contains scripts titled Contact Sheets, Make Calendar, and Web Gallery. I'm not sure what exactly these are and the launchpad definitely isn't where I want it to be.

 

Does anyone know how to get rid of this, why it's there?

Looks like the third party Contact Sheets app. Hiding in an Adobe folder. But so far as I see, Adobe can't make it delete folders in Launchpad, only you can do that.

If Adobe put them there, then they shouldn't be dangerous... interesting they are sample scripts, some apps might have hundreds of these.

They might be useful to you one day. If you delete them to tidy up Launchpad, you won't have them. Launchpad is designed to show everything on your Mac, and it was there for a reason.
