When we are going to complete a month of the final version of macOS Mojave, we find users who are evaluating the possibility of revert to a previous version of the system, for example, macOS High Sierra.
The reasons for this reversal can be many. It is usually related to problems with the current version of an app that you use on a recurring basis, or for some problem with any connection hardware type. Peripherals that are not yet adapted to the latest version of macOS present or for no apparent reason, revert to the High Sierra version as it is a more stable version.
Going back to the previous version of macOS High Sierra is not difficult, but it requires several steps and time to download the software and install it. For this we must carry out different steps.
First of all, tap download the macOS High Sierra software. We must go to the Mac App Store. If you search for macOS High Sierra from Mojave, it will not appear. This is because Apple does not provide an operating system older than the one currently installed. But it is found, if we go to our purchases, within the Mac App Store. Click download, on the right side.
This download will stay in the folder applications of our Mac. Identifying the file is very easy, its name is Install macOS High Sierra. With this file, you can use it to: create an installer macOS High Sierra boot, install the file on a virtualization application from operating systems like Parallels.
As it is not an executable file, we cannot just install it. In this case, we can rely on a previous version of Time Machine backup, which we have done with High Sierra installed. The last option is to save the file that we have downloaded to an external disk and perform a clean installation. This option is recommended in the case of taking a long time without being done, that is, version after version, or we install and uninstall many applications. You must bear in mind that the clean installation removes all the content of our equipment, you choose which option is best for your interests.
