Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.

It may want the cartridge in to protect the heads. Put an old empty on in. Make sure to go to Start, Settings, Printers. Select the Pixma and go to Printing Preferences. Once here set the COLOR OPTIONS to Grayscale, print black ink only.
Hope this workds for you.

get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge
