Hi i just installed Creative Cloud and Photoshop. I went to change the install location in Preferences because the SSD in my Mac is just 128gb, I have another drive plugged in via Thunderbolt 3 and when I clicked on it to change I got an error message saying, "Unable to install at this location." Does anyone know what to do?

As far as I know, you are not allowed to install programs to a removable drive

Move data files to your external

This is a horrible decision and so is Apple's decision to put such tiny drives inside their machines without an upgrade path. One of these companies needs to give in.

That is too small a drive.

Even if you manage to move some items to an external drive, you will soon experience performance issues.

You can't even install anything on the external from the Adobe products. It has to go on the internal or the cloud. The drives being sold with the apple products as well as the RAM is not enough.
