all opions by clicking on the triangle next to the selected printer name.
2) Go to the popup menu in the middle of the window (defaults to
“Layout”) and select “Xerox Features”
3) Change the popup menu under “Xerox Features” from “Printer/Output” to “Color Options”
4) Change the Color Mode from Automatic to “Black and White”

At this point, the document will print in black & white and be billed at the B&W rate.
