Link Media window not showing up
This issue is hard to explain, so please bear with me. I'm running the lastest Premiere Pro CC on Windows and when my media gets disconnected and I right click that media in project window, my whole Premiere freezes (like it's waiting on some action). It took me a while to figure out, but if I press Esc everyting gets back to normal.
It feels like Link Media window "opens" in the system, but I do not see it anywhere. Same issue with Attaching Proxies, I can't see that window pop up. After some research, nobody seems to have this problem. I've already restarted Premiere, my computer, and even reinstalled Premiere, but nothing helped.
Only solution right now I have going about relinking my media is by Replacing Footage, which sucks because I can only "replace" 1 media a time.
My computer specs: Windows 10 Pro, OS Build 18363.959, Intel Xeon Gold 6234 @ 3.30GHz, 32gb RAM.
Running Premiere Pro v14.3.1 (Build 45).

HOOORAY!!! Jason's solution also worked for me! I pressed alt+space and used my arrow keys to move it. After few seconds of holding left arrow key nothing was happening so I decided to move my mouse and as soon as I did that my mouse pointer was attached the Link Media window!
Thank you so much!

Oh my god! Jason's solution worked!!! It was a ways off screen, but I just kept holding down the arrow, and it eventually came back. Now that I'm thinking about it, this may have started when I replaced my second monitor a while back. Thank you so much!!

First, sorry for the hassle. My guess is that the modal dialog is opening up off-screen (did you at some point have multiple monitors? Maybe an external monitor attached to a laptop?) and since you can't interact with it you're blocked. One trick is when you are in this state (before clicking anywhere else) hold down the alt key and then hit space. This will bring up the system menu of the modal dialog. You can then hit the M key which will allow you to move the window using the arrow keys (maybe practice on notepad first so you get a feel for this as you'll have to do it blind with us, though once you start moving with the keys you should be able to move the window using the mouse, too, I think).

Same issue here. Had it for nearly a year, but only on my windows machine. Tried clearing preferences, deleting cache, and reinstalling premiere.
