How to configure Video Adapter

I have a Compaq FS7550 Color Monitor and I want to know how to make my KDE screen bigger without affecting my shell screen, by this I mean to have the X screen different than the normal shell screen. Please help me with that, it's getting frustating to change everytime the monitor settings just because i want to use KDE.
