    Windows 10 prints in gray scale


    My Windows 10 is printing in grayscale. My wife can print to the same printer in color. Printing to a PDF printer is OK.

    Does anyone know where to look to change that?

    Custom scaling documents for printing in windows 10

    Hi Kati,

    I would like to inform you that Scaling is controlled by the PDF application - it is not set in the file. Refer the link below and follow the steps suggested and check if that helps.

    Scale or resize PDF pages in Acrobat or Reader for printing
    Thank you.
     
  4. Windows 10 prints in gray scale

    custom scaling documents for printing in windows 10.

    Thank you for your reply, but control key + p only takes me to the same limited menu that I was using before, which is the 'more settings' tab in the menu I am provided when left tapping the printer icon in the upper right corner of the screen with pdf image
    I am trying to scale and print. There is no option for scaling on that menu. Perhaps there is on your screen. As mentioned, in previous versions of Windows, if one wished to really dig deeply into printer settings they could, and all from the same place in
    tools, right where it should be, under print options. Perhaps you are seeing something different than I. Please try scaling and printing a pdf document in different sizes from windows 10 and let me know what happens. Perhaps I am missing something simple.

    Otherwise, am I missing something here, or is Microsoft imagining that their consumers want fewer choices on a non-intuitive platform, rather than as many choices as are possible, arrayed on an easy to use intuitive platform?
