    Printer default colour


    Hi Guys
    I am trying to make black my default colour on my HP printer 3630.
    I have moved dot from colour selection to black and it works, but next time, colour is selected again.

    I have done what most sites say to do, that is, devices & printers, print preferences, etc etc and none work.

    Hi There,

    As I think I mentioned, I have done all that and it does not stay as chosen

    It would help if you give me a step x step to fix but I think I will end up the same.

    start, devices & printers, r/c on 3630 etc

    The process you explained is not setting the printer properties to use the selected changes as default. This can only be set by using the Printing Defaults button.

    Just checking to make sure this is the actual process you used?

    To change default print settings, open the control panel, view devices and printers, right click your HP Printer, select Printer Properties, Select advanced, select printing defaults, select advanced.
    Select options you need as default and click ok.

    There are also instructions on page 38 chapter 3 of your printer manual if you need additional settings help.
