# Windows – How to remove “Creative Cloud Files” from File Explorer address bar

Does any one know how to remove this Creative Cloud Files option after uninstalling Creative Cloud app from Windows 10

1. This folder does not exist as I deleted C:\username\Creative Cloud Files after uninstallation
2. This is not from File Explorer address bar history
4. I've reinstalled and used Official Uninstallers [ 1 ] & [ 2 ]
5. Suggestions about removing Creative Cloud Files from File Explorer Side Bar does not resolve this

I can't tell if this problem exist in other user account but i don't want to use that either.

Any hints or suggestions ?

## Update

After much digging around & hints from @DrMoishe Pippik, I have reached another dead end.

If I go to %USERPROFILE%\Links there are two links Desktop & Downloads

Going inside Desktop, it shows me Creative Cloud Files but I cannot delete it as Delete option is not there and Unlocker could not delete/rename it

Hence the problem now becomes :

1. I cannot cannot access this file from command prompt as its link inside link. Weirdly I cannot find this in dir /al /s c:\ > c: either
2. I cannot change its permission as it shows the error below. Safe mode doesn't allow that either

## Update

Registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDes‌​criptions as requested by @harrymc can be found below

Screenshot of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace which didn't point to anything important either

I have tested the following, removing the registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{0E270DAA-1BE6-48F2-AC49-8B7440BCAABB}

Resolves the issue.

Didn't even require a restart of Explorer. As I can't see any information from your HKCU path I can't confirm if the GUID will be the same for you, I only had two other things in there (Dropbox and OneDrive), where one had a default key of Creative Cloud Files. (I can also confirm removing the Dropbox and OneDrive ones from here removes from this dropdown also.)
