How do I set up my product to print only Black or Grayscale from Windows or my Mac?

  • Open a document and follow the steps below for your operating system to select Black/Grayscale or 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 or Grayscale, some color ink is still used. Black/Grayscale or Grayscale is not recommended for printing black-and-white photos.

    Windows

    1. Select the print command in your application.
    2. Make sure the product is selected.
    3. Click Printer Properties, Properties, or Preferences.

      Note: If you don't see these buttons, click Setup, Printer, or Options, and click Printer Properties, Properties, or Preferences on the next screen.

    4. Click the Main tab.
    5. Select Black/Grayscale as the Color setting.
    6. Click OK.

    Mac

    1. Select the print command in your application.
    2. Make sure the product is selected.
