print with black ink only

HP Envy 4520
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I can't afford all the colored ink it takes to print. I want to only use black ink in this printer. Is that possible? If so, how do I go about doing that? TIA

Hi @christiane41

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community. 

 

Use the single-cartridge mode to operate the HP ENVY 4520 series with only one ink cartridge. The single cartridge mode is initiated when an ink cartridge is removed from the ink cartridge carriage. During single cartridge mode, the printer can copy documents, copy photos, and print jobs from the computer.

 

Note - When the HP ENVY 4520 series operates in single-cartridge mode, a message is displayed on the printer display.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
