Acknowledged and thank you. As with Josh's response time precludes action
now but I will consider later.

Basics --- DATA and PROGRAMS are distinct
While you would probably want the application installed on each machine
you use, and in you personal user data area have many of the settings
and preferences you set be stored, you can place the data (a directory
containing the data for a GnuCash set of books) anywhere you damn
please. In your case that directory (file folder) would be on your USB
Once you have opened this set of books in both places (with the USB
drive inserted into each machine in turn) then that will remain a choice
when you "open" a set of books in GnuCash -- of course the drive would
have to be inserted in order to actually perform the open. GnuCash
automatically places the log/recovery files for a set of books into the
same directory where the books are located.
