How do I print in black/grayscale only?

    Open a document, then follow the steps below for your operating system to select Black/Grayscale or Grayscale.

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

    Black/Grayscale and Grayscale is not recommended for printing black-and-white photos.

    Windows

      If you don't see these buttons, click Setup, Printer, or Options, then click Properties or Preferences on the next screen.
    4. Click the Main tab, and select Black/Grayscale under Print Options.
    5. Click OK.
    Mac OS X
