But you're not adjusting the KDE system's settings. That phrasing implies that it is the "KDE System" that you do "Settings" on. Not that it's the "KDE" "System Settings" application.

Semantics matter, and clarity is even more important in a case like this.

Good point! I found KDE's "System Settings" very confusing, because I actually wanted to do RandR stuff, something like "Desktop Preferences" would have fitted my expectation better. System settings, means disk partitioning, barriers on/off, daemon config etc etc to me.
