How do I print in black/grayscale only?

    Follow the steps below for your operating system to select Black/Grayscale in the printer driver:

    Note: To keep the print head clear and ready to print, the printer uses a small amount of ink from all the cartridges whenever it prints. Even if you select Black/Grayscale, some color ink is still being used.

    1. Open the File menu and select Print.
    2. Click Properties or Preferences, and click the Main tab.
