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.
- Open the File menu and select Print.
Click Properties or Preferences, and click the Main tab.
- Under Print Options, select Black/Grayscale and click OK.
Open the File menu and select Print.
With Macintosh OS X 10.5 or 10.6, click the button to expand the Print window, if necessary.
- Make sure the correct printer is selected, and select Print Settings from the printer options pop-up menu.
- Select Black/Grayscale for the Color setting.
