How to print in black and white

I can not get coupons.com to only print my coupons in black and white. I know it can be done as the other coupons are printing in black and white but not coupons.com. I'm using explorer.

If you go to printer properties you should be able to change to grey scale only.

Yep that is how they work. I hate it but if I use a black/white laser printer or inkjet they print that way but touch a color printer that even has set to only print in black and it will still over ride and print in color.

It can be done...I had to go to my actual printer settings...not the printer settings through the computer (aka the devices and printer option) I have a Cannon printer and was able to get coupons.com to print b&w by clicking on the My Printer icon and changing the printer settings option there. Maybe other printers have a similar option??

Have you tried that with your HP? That trick usually doesn't work since 99.99% of the color printers on the market refuse to print unless there is a color cartridge in them.

As for changing the settings - that is a no go with HP's as coupons.com over rides the settings every time.

Have you tried going to Control panel and explore Printer? Once it opens, you can go to Printer preferences then press Advanced and you will find Printer Features with a drop down menu with 3 choices:
a. off
b. high quality grayscale
c. black ink only

The default is usually OFF so choose either b or c. if you have several computers tied up to a printer, make sure you go to Control Panel of each one to change setting.

I just printed some coupons from coupons.com today and they printed in black and white. I have had my printer set to print in black and white for several months and it has never been overrode. I am printing on an HP printer also. That is so weird, I have never had that problem before.

I have tried that numerous times and coupons.com always overrides the settings. Thankfully it is on my laser so doesn't really matter since I don't use color that often (and they look really pretty).

See what the print options are in your browser.

(I use firefox)
1) open "file"
2) open "print"
3) open "properties"
is black & white enabled? if not, click to enable.
(Windows usually has several places to change settings for things.)

Sometimes it holds across sessions; sometimes it needs to be set each time the browser is opened. I used to be able to set this in "page set up" but the choices are gone now.

Hope this helps.

I have an HP Printer and I just went through the control panel to access my printer settings to get it to print only in Black and White. Could be my specific model, but it didn't seem to tricky.
