    Printer and colors

    I am printing lists of addresses on internet phone book. To save ink I want print b/w. My printer Epson set on b/w however the prints come in colour. Do you think the problem is with my printer or is there something to set on my computer and how ? Thanks.

    Usually, if the printer is set for B/W then it will print in B/W. I have an Epson Artisan 835 and I can set it for B/W and whatever I print from that program is in B/W. However, if I exit out of the program and go to a different program I have to set it for B/W again. It won't stay on B/W.

Why does MS insist on using overly bright pastel looking colors across all their OS's? Starting with XP on up to Win8 they use pastel bright colors that in my opinion are not pleasing to the eyes. It's like they let the grade school girls design the color scheme. Why can't they find a line...
