    I don't see any duplicated app there. Also, "AdobeApplicationManager" and "AAMLauncherUtil" don't have to be launched, because they look as utilities that Adobe applications use

    Only your Adobe applications use them, so I don't find any reason to open them manually. I think you should leave them as they are now.

     

    Another thing you can do is to reset Launchpad to factory settings, so then you will be able to add the apps you want to Launchpad, and those apps that you don't need or don't do anything won't appear. To reset Launchpad, open Terminal and copy: rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db && killall Dock

     

    Then, drag the apps you want to show on Launchpad to the Launchpad icon on the Dock, so they will appear on Launchpad

    You can drag them into the last page of Lauchpad: drag them left off of the window; repeat as necessary.
