Right now it just appends the table name to the query window (which isn't very useful). It should behave like the MySQL Query Browser program. e.g.

SELECT * FROM tablename LIMIT 0,1000;

instead of


How to repeat:
Double click any table name for any schema

Thank you for the feature request.

Adding the table name is the intended current implementation of double-click. 
Creating a SELECT query is done through other means.

Fixed as of the MySQL Workbench 6.2.0 release, and here's the changelog entry:

The schema navigator now includes new overlay icons for common operations
such as table data view, table edit, and table/schema inspector.

Thank you for the bug report.
