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 in the printer driver.
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 or Grayscale, some color ink is still being used.
Black/Grayscale or Grayscale is not recommended for printing black-and-white photos.
- Open the File menu or click and select Print.
- Make sure the Workkforce 435 is selected as the printer.
