Printing problem on glossy paper.

HP ink Tank wireless 415
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Since I bought this printer, I have been facing some problem to print on a glossy paper. When I print something on the glossy paper, the prints perfectly but the the paper can not hold the black colour. It comes off just by a little touch. But it prints fine on the normal paper. How can I solve this problem?

Make sure you are selecting the proper paper type in the driver settings.  Glossy media is not compatible with the pigmented black ink.  If you select glossy photo paper in the driver settings the driver will automatically use color inks only, resulting in much better results.
