    You must be referring to the start screen as untidy by default. Yes. Absolutely.
    I apologize if I misunderstand, but the Master Collection is organized automatically and requires no configuration in the all apps area. Your start screen is very well done and quite efficient. Installing Adobe CS would not mix with Store Apps in the apps area. (yes to mixed on the start screen) You are correct to unpin what you might not need today from the start screen. I can see you created a start screen group titled Adobe. Very nice.

    Ah, I notice you have CS6, so they must have made changes in later versions of Adobe CS. When installing CS4 it puts all the Adobe files on the left-hand side of the 'All Apps' section, which meant they were in with the Store Apps. I'm guessing the CS4 installer didn't include an Adobe folder in the path, so it just put them all on the top level.
