    My Canon i860 printer uses 5 ink catridges.

    2 are black inks.

    3 are color inks.

    I don't want to keep replacing the color ink.

    Does any one know how to get the printer to print in BLACK ink only?

    I mainly print pages off the net, not actual pictures.

    Anybody that has an i860, let me know, cause I have some other specific questions.

    Open Printers in the Control Panel, then select your default printer with a Right Click.

    Under Printing Preferences> Paper/Quality (tab), at the bottom under Print Quality (should be set to Draft or Normal to keep ink usage down), there is a switch for Print in Black And White Only. Click it and you are golden.


    Best regards,

    I found the Print Quality buttons.

    I still can't find the Black & white option.

    Do I need to play with the profile tab?
