Removing Gray Shadow-like Box

Hello, everyone! I was wondering how I could remove this gray box around my object. When I select it, the box suddenly has this weird gray box around it. I can't seem to find what it is. I've included the images below. Thank you so much! I appreciate everything!

When asking for help with an issue in your code, it's usually more helpful to show us your actual code so we can see what is causing something is usually a better approach than showing a screenshot and leaving us to guess* at might be the cause of what you are seeing.

For some tips on how to show us your code, check out the tips for asking questions video located in the right hand sidebar.

Thank you for the advice! Sorry I didn't know how to post the code, but I will keep this in mind for the future :)!

Looks like the stock browser outline which you can use by adding the outline property like the below example.

myelement {
    outline: none;

Thank you so much! That did the trick! You are amazing :)
