I tried to use MySQL Workbench in a netbook running Linux (but the os doesn't matter) and I couldn't see the whole window. Then I searched for viewing options and I did not found anything to modify the window workspace.
I think it would be a good addition to make some adjustements to it.

How to repeat:
Just open MySQL Workbench in a small screen computer (600px verical aprox)

Suggested fix:
Add a fullscreen option.
Add a toolbar view option.
Option to not show the "Home banner" (I don't know how is it called the top zone of the Home)

MySQL Workbench is designed as a desktop application and will not run on Netbooks. We do require an absolute minimum resolution of 1024x768 in order to display the full UI with all options and still provide good usability.

We might add a special reduced "mode" for smaller displays in the future, but this is out of the scope of the current WB 5.2 release.

Thanks for reporting, we will track the number of requests coming in for that feature request.
