    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?

    Open script editor and paste this into it

    Code:
    try
    	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.
