The process for printing in black and white is the same as for printing in colour, although your Mac must be simply told to inform the printer to print in just black ink. The majority of programmes print in a similar manner.
Step 1: Open the image and document you want to print.
Step 2: Select File in the application's menu bar to begin.
Step 3: Discover Print in the drop-down menu, then chooses it.
Step 4: If you notice a Black & White box, check it, or go to the Presets menu and choose Black & White. You might occasionally need to switch between colour and black and white.
Step 5: Click Print after making any necessary adjustments to the quantity and page count.
You can save yourself the trouble of tinkering with selections every time you launch the Print function if you plan to Print in Black and White on a Mac frequently. Save a preset, which keeps track of the specific settings you select. Whenever you print again in the future, you can easily access the preset.
Step 1: This is how a preset for black and white printing is saved.
Step 2: Using the menu bar, select Black & White printing under File > Print.
Step 3: Choose the Presets drop-down option after choosing the settings you wish to use for black-and-white printing.
Step 4: Save Current Settings as Preset by clicking.
Step 5: Give your preset a name, like B&W, for instance. Choose between preserving the preset for All Printers or Only This Printer if the option is presented.
Step 6: Tap Ok
You could not see the possibility of printing in black and white even if you have a printer that you're aware of as being able to print without colour. In that instance, deleting the printer using System Preferences and afterwards setting it up again on your Mac are two things you may do to rectify the issue (along with many others).
Step 1: If the printer is a wireless printer, unplug it from your Mac or turn it off.
Step 2: Choose System Preferences from the drop-down menu that appears when you click the Apple menu at the top of the Mac screen.
Step 3: Simply select Printers & Scanners.
Step 4: In the left pane, choose the printer you want to remove.
Step 5: At the bottom of the printer pane, click the Minus (-) sign. Then, click Delete Printer to finish the process.
Step 6: If the printer is a wireless one, restart it as usual or reconnect it to your Mac using its USB cable.
Step 7: In most circumstances, simply reconnecting your printer will be enough to enable it on your Mac. However, you might need to take additional action if issues arise.
The following additional troubleshooting actions are:
Step 1: Visit the website of the printer's manufacturer to download an update.
Step 2: Utilize a USB cord to link your wireless printer to the Mac.
Step 3: To manually add your printer, go back to the Printers & Scanners settings box and select the Add (+) button.
Step 4: Reset your printer.
