Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
The easiest quickest way to do this is to make "quick sets" if you are running windows. Open up a print dialog ( try to print something ). Next to the name of the printer is preferences. Click on this. In that window is a box that says type name of quick set here. First, find the tab that has a box you can select that says either "grayscale" or "monochrome". Select this and go back to the quickset box. Type whatever you want to name this, maybe "black only". This is now your black only quickset. Save it and exit. Do the same process again, except don't select the monochrome box. Name this one "color". Now when you go to print, click preferences next to the printer name in the print dialog box, and select the proper quickset. This is an excellent procedure for color laser printers as on most models, it will greatly extend the life of your color laser cartridges because it actually disengages the drives on the color carts, reducing the life count, and extending the life of the carts. It will also prevent the printer from using color to print slightly not black items (scanned or downloaded images) without you knowing. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

The Grayscale print option optimizes the look of color slides for printing on a black and white printer by adding shading. The Pure Black and White option prints your slides in monochrome.
