How can I set black and white printing as my default on my Photosmart 5510e?

I have a Photosmart 5510e. I would like to set the default so that it always prints in black and white. How can I do this?

Hi,

 

Which is the O\S used? If windows go to printer control panel > right click on 5510 > select printing preferences > Click advanced > under printer features > turn on print in grayscale mode.

 

For Mac please refer the link below.

I am printing from a website. When I click print I get a window that does not offer me any color settings. My OS ia10.6 (Mac). My browser is Chrome.

Hi,

 

What happens when you select print option on chrome do you find printer icon and its properties?

I do not get a printer icon and properties. I get a little diagram of the printer as a destination with the choice to change it, but no choice to change any settings. I'd send you a acreen shot of it but  I don't think I can.

Hi,

 

Please change the settings under printer properties and then try printing again. Please check the link for the same.

Re: How can I set black and white printing as my default on my Photosmart 5510e?

Hi, The window I get after clicking print does not have a printer properties choice. I recently upgraded my Chrome to 22.0.1229.79. I no longer get the drop down box that I am familiar with, which does have printer properties and other choices that can be changed and selected. This on is different, and deoes not offer many choices. I have included an image of the screen sht I took of it, below.
