When you have your windows 7 task bar at the top of the screen (and possibly other versions of windows), if you open the value editor and other dialogue windowss, they appear at the very top of the screen behind the task bar, so you can't drag the window around, or see the top of the dialogue.

How to repeat:
1. Move your windows 7 task bar to the top of the screen by right clicking it select "Lock the taskbar" to remove the tick. Then drag the task bar to the top of the screen.
2. Load up a dataset for a table in Workbench. E.g. "Edit table data"
3. Right click a column, and select "Open value in editor".
4. The editor will appear behind the task bar.

This also happens with the new connection dialogue, and edit connections dialogue, and possibly others.

Suggested fix:
Add check in all dialogue opening code to use visible screen area, not including task bar, regardless of where the task bar is in windows.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.2.2 release, and here's the changelog entry:

On Windows, the dialog windows would appear under the Windows task bar.

Thank you for the bug report.
