Hi Subhashis
Once you have loaded the PSF and PDB files, you may alter "all" (in selected
Atoms) to protein and chain X (or simply protein - if there is only a single
chain). For every changes you make in Selected Atoms, press enter to see the
For this representation (highlighted in the menu), choose options in Drawing

Do have a look into vmd tutorial for more on Graphical representation/ Draw
Hope it helps !
