No "Print in Color" option

I have had a HP Officejet 6500A Plus printer for about a year now, which I love, but every time I try to print something in color I am unable to because there is no option when I go to "print" in Windows 7. There's nothing in the first window that opens, or in any subsequent windows that open when clicking properties. Please help, I don't know what to do. Thanks!

Re: No "Print in Color" option

Go through the steps below and let me know what you have on the list


1. Click Start (or Windows orb)

2. Click Control Panel

3. Click Devices and Printers. The Devices and Printers window opens.


What devices/printers are listed here? If there are no printers installed then you will need to reinstall the drivers for the Officejet 6500A. You can download the drivers using the HP Printer Install Wizard linked below.
