    Hey guys, long time since I've posted here.

    My pen encountered some water three days ago, and since then it seems to always be holding the "left mouse button" down. When I hover over the desktop, it drags a blue highlighted selection box around.

    Any ideas on how to fix it? Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Perhaps get a can of compressed air and try blowing it into the cracks around the button. It's possible something got jammed in there that is causing it to be stuck.

    You can alternatively purchase a replacement. Or as a temporary solution disable the right click and just use the touch and hold option in Windows for right clicking.

    Forgive me, I think I was a little vague. The physical button works fine. The problem is that when I hover over the screen with the stylus, no buttons pressed, it is perceiving a held left mouse click event.

    Nope. I understood it. It's still possible something got stuck from the water getting in there. Dust mixed with water can be a little sticky.

    Oh, excellent! I'll try to find a can of compressed air and try this.

    Well, it seems the stylus has fixed itself.

    Nichod - I greatly appreciated your assistance.

    Might have just needed to dry a little.
