    I need to block color printing on a copier Toshiba 5015ac.


    I am writing here for help as 1 Toshiba doesn't have an answer at least yet, and 2 my "fix" for the problem involves Printing Rules set in Printer Preferences.

    Our tech consultants are not coming up with a fix either for the situation I am describing below either. They are making an honest effort but without results.

    Whether configured on a Print Server, or configured locally on a Windows 10 computer via TCP/IP Standard printing, I can't lock out color unless I use Printing Rules. In Printing Preferences, having "Color" set to B&W only does not block a user from selecting color and then printing in color even if set in an administrative access print server.

    Our issue is people forget to switch back to B&W printing and the next user inadvertently prints wastes expensive color ink in color.

    Using the Black&White Printing Rule, whether set in a print server or locally on a computer, DOES block color printing. However, having the Black&White printing rule in place blocks users from making ANY other printing changes, such as Stapling, on subsequent print jobs. Color is blocked on all subsequent print jobs, but so are any other modifications.

    It seems REALLY ODD to me that having just one print rule in effect Black&White in Printing Preferences should block subsequent completely unrelated modifications like selecting stapling. I want ONLY B&W printing to be mandatory without losing subsequent printing flexibility.

    Is it the case that ANY printing rule renders other subsequent printing options stapling, hole punches, etc unavailable? Is there any way around this? I tried setting B&W, Stapling, hole punching, etc printing rules but don't want them applied inflexibly to all subsequent print jobs.

    Any assistance in this matter would be gretly appreciated.

    :)

    Color printing

    I would suggest the following steps:

    In Word, click on "File" - "Options".

    Click on "Display" - Select the box which says "Print background colors and images".

    Click Ok to save the settings and then try to print.

    Surface Pro won't print in color

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues while trying to print in color while using Surface Pro.​​ As you have mentioned that you are able to print in greyscale, it is possible that printer settings are set to print in greyscale. We will certainly assist
    you with this issue.



    However, we would like to know the details requested below:



    • What is the make and model of the printer that you are using?
    • Which application are you are using to print?
    • Are you aware of any changes made to the computer recently?


    I would suggest you to check the printing preferences and check if the Print in Gray Scale option is enabled. Refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows Logo key + R, to open
      Run dialog box.
    2. Type control printers and click on
      OK.
    3. Right click on the Printer that you are using, and select
      Printing Preferences.
    4. Navigate to the Color tab and select the option
      Print in color. (If you do not see Color tab, you may want to check the
      Advanced options and check if Print in Grayscale is
      off.)
    5. Click on OK and check if you are able to print in color.


    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,
