Can I withdraw an I539 application after a decision had been made?
Here is the story: I filed B2 extension last year in March. The USCIS office was soon closed due to the pandemic and I could not do the fingerprint. I left USA before I94 expired to avoid any unlawful presence. Recently I received the decision from USCIS as "denied". The reason is I could not complete the fingerprint process as I left. Is it ok that I write a letter to explain to USCIS and ask for a case withdrawal instead of getting a denied record? And BTW, is there any effect for this "denied" decision in future?

You may not withdraw already denied I-539.
This denial is inconsequential, because you did not overstay. You abandoned your I-539. No penalty for that.
