    I know how to change the settings, but when I click "other" and go to Applications, I have to choose a certain application I want to open. How can I make it open the whole folder?

    The Kop
    Open script editor and paste this into it

    	tell application "Finder"
    		set tpath to path to applications folder
    		open folder tpath as alias
    	end tell
    end try

    Save it as a script and then place it in /Library/Scripts. This will allow you to select it as an option in the mouse preferences and hopefully it will work. I can't test it out unfortunately.
