Hi,

 

Your question is very general, therefore my answer is also very general: In general, in Printer properties, select "Grayscale Printing" as save as "Default"

 

Hope this helps.

@rodriguesbja

Is it possible that you have a Officejet 6700?  What version Operating System do you have on your Mac?

Try the steps below.

 

 

1.  Click File and click Print in the  program that you are printing from.

 

2.  Make sure your printer is selected.

 

3.  Select "Paper Type/Quality" 

 

4.  Click on the triangle besides Color Option, and select Grayscale from the color menu.

 

5.  Select Presets at the top of the dialog box, and select save.

 

Let me know how it goes.
