color printing

How can I set default to print black and white?  I do want to print in color sometimes so I need to know how to select color when I need it.  But generally want to print black and white.

Hi,

 

You can set default to print B&W using Black Ink only and you can print in colors anytime (only remember to click option when print).

 

1. Set default Black ink only:

 

The setup may vary from printer to printer but basically (for Windows):

(a) Double click printer icon on desktop,
(b) Click Set Preferences,
(c) Click Advanced,
(d) Select "Black Ink only" for Print in Grayscale
(e) Click Ok/Apply ...

Note: Printer still needs all color inks and it will consume a very small amount of inks during warmng up process.

 

2. Print colors:

 

When you wish to print on colors, remember to

 

(a) Click Printer properties,

(b) Go to Quality and tick Colors before print.

 

It will go back to default immediately after each print job.

 

Regards.

BH
