Original Title: HP computer with Windows 8 connected to an HP Officejet 4500 G510n-z printer
I have a new HP computer, with Windows 8 software. It is connected to "HP Officejet 4500 G510n-z" printer. I am unable to set the defualt for printing as; "black only." The best I can do is set it for "Grayscale." When I print a document, without changing the setting under the title: "preferences," to grayscale, the doument prints in color. I would like to be able to set it for "black only" as the default setting. Included in the printers depicted in the control panel, appears one entitled: "HPeprint." I have also found a reference to this printer in the list of printers that appears when I open up the icon: "Devices," which appears on the right side of the screen when I move the curser to the right-bottom of the screen. When I select this printer, the box for color reads: "color." When I click on it the word "grayscale" appears as an alternative. After I select this option, and try to print, an error message comes up. Do you have an explanation for what is happening, and how I can completely set the color option for my printer as: black only?
