printing in black only with the HP Officejet Pro 8600

I am trying to set up the office printer (HP Officejet Pro 8600)  so that it always prints in black ink.  I went into the control panel and tried to set it up on my pc so that it would do this but when I print you still have change setting before every print.  Any and all help will be appreciated.

Please read this post then provide some details.  What operating system? 


In Windows 7 I would click Start, Devices and Printers, right click on the Officejet Pro 8600, Printer Preferences, Advanced, Print in grayscale, Black ink only, OK, Apply, OK.
