@GregD03, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

To print in black and white, select the Black & White option from the print settings.

NOTE: 

Some HP printers must have some ink of each color available to print and to perform periodic servicing tasks. This helps prevent issues such as printhead clogs and poor print quality. There is no way to bypass this feature.

Print in black and white

Change the print settings to print black and white documents and photos. Available print settings and menu locations vary by printer model, driver type, and the app you are printing from.

  1. Open the document or photo you want to print, click File, click Print, and then click Show Details, if necessary.

  2. Select Black & White on the main dialog. The Presets menu also includes black and white options.

    Select Black & White in the print dialog

  3. To use less black ink, click Media & Quality in the unnamed print options menu at the center of the dialog, and then move the Quality slider to Draft.

  4. Click Print.

  5. To create a new preset based on the selected print settings, click the Presets menu, and then select Save Current Settings as Preset.

I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!
