Grayscale; black ink only or High Quality

I have the HP Photosmart C4600 series, and I was curious about how to make my ink last the longest. I am just printing assignments, nothing that needs to be super nice looking. I selected print in grayscale but I wasn't sure which would be best for me, the high quality or black ink only. 

Thank you for your help,

Crystal

Re: Grayscale; black ink only or High Quality

The "high quality" setting will use the color cartridge for better graphics quality, the "black only" setting will use the black cartrdige only.

 

For best economy use "black only" and print in draft or econofast mode.

Hi,

 

How do you only print in black ink on the HP Photosmart C4680?

 

Thanks,

Lisa
