Is there any way in a Mac OS X Server v. 10.5.8 to minimize (or hide) the application launcher at the bottom of the screen? (See the attached screenshot).

If so, how is this done?

The monitor that I have connected to this Mac server has a resolution limitation of 800x600. Any resolutions higher than this result in the monitor going black.

This presents a problem while I am remotely connected to this server and I sometimes need to click on icons at the very bottom of an application window.

    With application launcher you probably mean the "dock".

    You also can move the dock to the lift/right side of the screen.

    But you can also hide it.

    If you go to this link, you'll see what you can do with the dock + how you could achieve it. (This is related to MAC OS X 10.5, so ideal for you)
