Can I tell windows to print black text in colour

I have an epson printer with a faulty black cartridge head and therefore it wont print any black - only colour.

Can I fool the printer by telling windows to print all text in brown or some other colour as a default, even if its being displayed in black on the screen.

Try highlighting all the text, then choose the colour, any colour you want from the tool bar

Thanks for your replies everyone.

I'm going to bin the printer instead as is not worth making the changes every time.

Does anyone want it for spares - at P+P cost?

Apparently older inferquently used epson printers are prone to this problem.

Ask local charities. I got rid of an old printer this way. They were extremely pleased, as they knew a man locally who would repair computer parts for them FREE. Their old printer was just about beyond repair even by him.
