  • Click Start , point to Settings , and then click Control Panel.
  • Double-click Printers and Faxes .
  • Right-click the appropriate all-in-one, and then click Printing Preferences .
  • Click the Paper/Quality tab and under Type is select Plain Paper .
Have a nice day...don't forget to rate the solution.
