Thanks! It fixed my MX Anywhere behavior problems (loss of selection during drag, can't select text at specific range) after a good 2 years service. Never expect it is such simple problem. I don't have a can of compress air with me. Instead, I just use a knife to lift up the the left mouse click pad then blow it with my mouth. It worked! I guess some accumulated dust inside was the problem.

For anyone has similar problem, you can first go to window control panel on mouse to switch left/right, then you should see the selection works fine if you use right click. Go ahead try the blow clean as suggested on your left click pad.

Just want to say my appreciation and share my experiences. My mouse is good now!
