    Itís not odd that some apps arenít working or supported in the latest version of Mac OS. Thatís exactly what is was trying to explain earlier

    You can install and run any version of MacOS in an external drive.
    Obviously itís performance will be limited be the device and itís connection but it works fine.

    Easiest way is to create a usb installer for Sierra. Boot from the installer with the external drive connected. Choose the external as the drive to install to and away you go.
    Hereís a good guide for the process. It refers to High Sierra but the process is the same for Sierra. Use the disk maker app as suggested for ease.

    and I do very much appreciate ALL the replies I receive at this forum.

    erase my whole flash drive on macbook air.
