If you are using a pc, click the start menu, followed by "Printers and Faxes". If you don't see that option, click "Control Panel" and look for it there. Right click the particular printer that you want to set up and choose printing preferences. You should be able to set this option somewhere in the preferences window (I can't tell you exactly where because I don't know what kind of printer you have). Generally the colour setting is under the category "Quality" but where that option is depends on your printer.
Once you've found the setting, click "Apply" and "ok". Now when you print, the default will be B&W.
If you are unable to find the B&W option, I'd suggest reposting your question with more details about what kind of printer you are using.

Can the copy setting be defaulted to black and white document?


You can set it to B+W but it will revert to its default setting the next time you print.

No setting for black and white printing only


The setting isn't on your printer, its in windows.

The next time you print, instead of just clicking "Ok" to send the document to the printer, click "properties." this will look different depending on your OS and whether or not you have printer software installed so I can't give you step by steps but there should be an option here to either set the printing defaults to greyscale or just a straight up black/white dropdown/checkbox. save that as default and you are done.

Why does the Samsung clp-510 color laser printer keeps defaulting to black and white print out when printing color images?


Well one thing you should do is when your printing something out before you print make sue that you have selected color not black and white because most printers have a default setting to use black and white. Also make sure that you have color ink available to print.

HP Deskjet, Set to Black & White; but still prints with color!


Bronze, hopefully this is a logical issue: Assuming you're on WinXP > Go to Start>Control Panels>Printers (and faxes).
Find the printer in question in the list (maybe there's only one or 2 listed) and 'Right-click' on the icon > go down to "Printing Preferences" (about second/third down the list).
In here you will be able to set the printers default settings. I'm not 100% familiar with HPs printing dialog, but there maybe a setting there for either 'Black & White' and 'Grayscale' (albeit it should be greyscale, anyway...) if you choose black and white your printing will not have any mid-tone, so if there's a choise, choose 'Grayscale'.
You can set other features here which will become the new default each time you go to print something - personally I set to 'Draft' or 'Fast Draft' mode by default, that way when I just print out rubbish, I am saving "lots" of ink and if I want something in good quality, I change it at time of printing.
Now, there are some programs and files that "remember" you last print settings, so if you've used a colour print setting previously, that file may still pring in colour, even though the new defaults are mono (black & white). So, print using the new defaults and save the file when finished. It's unlikely the case with OpenOffice, but, I don't know. We'll tackle that as we get to it.
So, if that has not cured the problem, please let me know.

I want to print in black and white only


Dear "mmmom" if your OS is Windows go to control panel, click on printers and fax icon, now go to setting of your printer (right mouse key on it) and set it to black and white. Now your printer is always set to black and white and for color printing you have to set printer to color from application (word, excel,...) you are using.

Can I set default printing to black and white for color laser printer?


Yes. Any printer's default options can be set as desired. Open the printer's properties (Start/Control Panel/Printers/right click the printer and left click Properties), and change the setting as you wish, then click OK. Those settings should be used each time you use the print command, unless you change the settings for that particular print job.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!
