Print In Black And White From MS Paint

Ed has a question about Microsoft Paint.  He writes: “In Paint is there a way to print in BLACK & WHITE only?”

Sure, but it’s actually function of your printer and not of paint. Let met show you how to do it.  Open the image you wish to print in Paint and then select Print.


Then choose Preferences.


In the Printing Preferences window, select the tab Color tab at the top.


Then check the box beside Print in Grayscale.


Click OK at the bottom of the Window.


This will work in MS Paint and pretty much anywhere else you want to only print a color image or document in black and white.

  1. I’ve done this in the past. If it is a [new] or just edited image, SAVE it first! Now remove the color (reduce intensity or saturation)in almost any photo editing app. Print the image and/or ‘Save As…’, Don’t simply ‘Save’! Well, unless you really want to, that is. 🙂
