1) Let's assume you have clicked and dragged your mouse to select some text on a page. To print only the selected text, go to File (at the top of the page), then Print. You should then see a dialogue box which gives you the option to print a selection (on my hp printer, it is under 'Page Range').

You can also try the keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+P, to bring up the dialogue box.
Don't just click the printer icon you see on the menu, because that will print out the full page using your default settings.

2) You should be able to select grayscale by using the same dialogue box. Click the button marked 'Preferences', then the tab for 'Color' and you should see the grayscale option.

I don't know your printer model so the options may be slightly different for you, but hope this helps you get started.

I want to print word documents for B/W but I could not find black/grayscale


Hi
You need to get into Printer Preferences, where you can select black/grayscale from the Print Options list. Following this link:
https://files.support.epson.com/pdf/xp400_/xp400_ug.pdf
will take you directly to a manual in pdf format which you can save to your computer for future reference. The section you want starts on page 49 and on page 50, there is a screen shot of the properties you need to get to on the computer, to put a tick in the "Black/Grayscale" box.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

I changed the drum to my HP LJ 2500L and now ot only prints in black and white. I have triple checked it's the right drum and there are no errors showing up. What's the problem?


Print a Configuration page, if it is grayscale, you probably installed a bad drum.
Make sure that "color" mode is selected in the program you are using or the printer driver. Check and see if "grayscale is selected.
If you are printing transparencies, they ONLY print grayscale.
Go to hp.com and download the latest drivers.

HP L7700 officejet printer leaves streaks on black ink lines only. Have cleaned heads repeatedly, changed black and color cartridges - nothing works.


Print in grayscale (black area streaking only) If the streaks are in a black area of a black and white printout, change to grayscale printing.
NOTE: This step does not apply to color printouts.
  1. In the application you are printing from, click File , and then click Print .
  2. Make sure the printer is selected and click Properties .
  3. Click the Color tab, and select Print Grayscale and High Quality .

Color toner used up even though I selected grayscale


Selecting grayscale only will also make use of your color. when u select grayscale, look under the print options and select black cartridge only and for more economic printing, use fast draft or draft printing.
