Adobe & Creative Cloud Helper apps in the Utilities folder (macOS)

My Utilities folder in the launchpad is full with those Adobe / Creative Cloud apps (for example Core Sync, Creative Cloud helper, CC Throubleshooter...)

 

I want to know if there is any way I can hide those apps, because this literally messes up my folder.

I'm using a 2019 MacBook Air Core i5 1.6 GHz.

 

Thanks.

You cannot move the apps or hide them. All of them, apparently, do something you need, or Adobe want you to have.

I've also noticed that my Mac Utilities folder now has the following subfolders:
/Adobe Applications Manager

/Adobe Creative Cloud

/Adobe Creative Cloud Experience

/Adobe Installers

/Adobe Sync
Is there a reason why Adobe needs to store files under my Mac Utilities when other apps don't require this? For the common user it would be pertinent to have an example of what to expect in our system directories. Any help or documentation would be apreciated.

This comes at a time that I'm having issues with cashing, and I notice that this is due to a significant amount of drive space occupied by my Adobe CC apps since the latest updates (2020). (Cache purged and temp files deleted)
