Can't print in color

HP Recommended
HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 4535
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have installed the latest HP Smart. I can scan in color, I did the aligment process and the test pager was printed in color, my carthaged are full. When I try to print photo in color it only prints grayscale. In the settings menu for printing photos in HP Smart if I choose More settings on the bottom and than on ther bottom where's the output I select Color and click OK and then go imediately back to that setting it always reverts back to grayscale. Even if I use default Windows 10 printing option the photo is always black & white with no option to select color. Why the printer prints color test page and doesn't want to print other things in color? Please help!

I noticed something strange. In the printer properties there's no option to switch between b&w and color. This probably has something to do with my issue. How to solve this?
