I don't know how to put it, but sometimes when I select something, certain element (usually what I selected right before) is keep highlighted until I restart the illustrator. even though it actually not modifies with other actual selected element, but it keeps highlighted whole time and it is really annoying.  I tried to unselect it with clicking other places with selecting tool, but not working. it happens not only on the computer I work on right now but the other computer I used as well.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Evelyn,

 

I may be misremembering something like it, but you may try to see whether Ctrl/Cmd+E can cure it (toggling between GPU and CPU, you can untoggle if the issue remains).


This is what GPU is about:

Or, with this exquisite wording by Monika:
https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/cpu-gpu-preview-modes-in-illustrator/m-p/10847674#M161071


Graphics cards are included in the system requirements:

Apart from an inadequate card, the issue can be caused by lack of driver updating, lack of proper recognition of the card by the computer, and whatnot (including rifts in the space time, moon, weather, and the fact that Illy sometimes moves in mysterious ways).

 

Here are a few more pages about GPU troubleshooting:
