How do I set my product's software to print only in Black or Grayscale in Windows or OS X?
A:
Open a document, then follow the steps below for your operating system to select Black/Grayscale or Grayscale in the printer driver.

Note: To keep the print head clear and ready to print, the printer uses a small amount of ink from all the cartridges whenever it prints.
