Q:
How do I print in black/grayscale only?
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. Even if you select Black/Grayscale or Grayscale, some color ink is still being used.

Black/Grayscale or Grayscale is not recommended for printing black-and-white photos.
