I wana print a document in black and white, but I have a colour ink cartridge and oviously it is printing in colour. Is there a way to print that document only in black and white.

Some cheaper colour printers only use one cartridge (colour) - this mixes the colours to produce black but it is only a compromise.

Whatever your printer is you should be able to get a black ink version for it and swap the cartridges over as required.

try looking under printer settings if it is an epsom printer there should be a utility there that can change it. And do you have a black ink cartridge in the printer

When you click on FILE and then PRINT, in the box which comes up there should be a Mono or Grey Scale box to tick but it will depend upon the printer you have.
It would also be cheaper in the long run to buy a black cartridge as printing black using all colours obviously wastes a lot of ink.
