Split the "Creative Cloud Desktop" app into "app manager" and "content manager"
Considering how much of an uproar the newly expanded "Creative Cloud Desktop" app UI has caused, I have a suggestion that I believe would satisfy both those who do like it and those who don't.
Disclaimer: this are simply my opinion, I'm not presuming to know what every thinks, likes or wants.. But from my interpretation of the complaints I've read so far, mixed in with my own preferences, I believe this will be a good plan.
In a nutshell, my suggestion is to keep "Creative Cloud Desktop" as a standalone application, much like it currently is, but to move the CC application management functionality into a separate app. So it would effectively contain nothing but the contents of the "Your Work" tab.
The new "Creative Cloud App Manager" (just an example name) would effectively then become what the previous "Creative Cloud Desktop" app was before the new UI: simply a way to install, update and uninstall the other Creative Cloud applications, including the features that this new desktop app's "Your Work" tab currently contains.
Note: I did also vote for the "Compact mode - Minimal view to launch apps and recent files" request, I'm just posting this as an alternative option up for discussion.
Then one can throw the "Content Manager" part into the dust bin and only use the App manager.
agree and voted in both. also how is is that hundreds of thousands of people use adobe software and only 44 feel the same way?!

I agree with Ander's idea. Keep it simple. When I'm working on a project I'm usually under the gun. I need as much screen space as possible and want to quickly access any app I choose quickly; not hunt through 50 different options that I may never use.
