HP J6480 printer properties won't change in Office 2010 and/or in IE9.
I am running Win7/64bit and Office 2010/32 bit. When changing printing properties from within an office, excel, or powerpoint document, a working solution for me is as follows:
On the ribbon open the FILE TAB,
on the FILE TAB click Print,
hover the mouse pointer over the "Printer Properties" link (should highlight in red),
left click the link (keep pressed down),
hit the ENTER key on the keyboard (the printer properties window will open),
change the color properties, etc... click the OK button,
click the PRINT button to print the document.
Note however, that this action will not change the DEFAULT print preference.
When printing a Web page in IE9, if the properties can't be changed from the PREFERENCES button, then click on the Printer Icon to open a context menu so you can access the Printing Preferences.. This should work but note that any changes made will become the new printer preference default setting.
