This document is for HP printers and Mac computers.
Find and change printing settings, such as selecting paper type and size, printing in color or black and white, and improving quality.
note:
Available print settings and menu locations vary by printer model, driver type, and the app you are printing from. HP recommends using Apple AirPrint to set up and use your printer. Go to Printing with Apple AirPrint (macOS and OS X) for more information.
  1. Open a document, photo, or webpage, click File, and then click Print to open the print dialog.

    • Print in color or black and white: Select or de-select Black & White on the main dialog. The Presets menu also includes color and black and white options.
    • Paper type (photo, plain, specialty): Selecting the paper type ensures the printer properly applies the ink to the paper you loaded in the printer. Click Media & Quality, and then click the Paper Type menu.
    • Paper size: Select the paper from the Paper Size menu on the main dialog, if present. Or, click Paper Handling, select Scale to fit paper size, and then select the paper in the Destination Paper Size menu.
    • Create a custom paper size: Click Manage Custom Sizes in the Paper Size menu, if available. The feature might also be available from the app File menu in Page Setup. Go to Creating Custom Paper Sizes for more information.
    • Adjust print quality: Click Media & Quality, and then move the Quality slider to the desired setting.
    • Two-sided printing (duplexing): Select Two-Sided on the main dialog, select Layout from the print options menu, and then select a binding option in the Two-Sided menu. Go to Printing on Both Sides of the Paper (Mac) for detailed steps on how to load and flip the paper for your printer type.
    • Add or remove a border: Click Layout, and then click the Border menu to select a border width or select None for borderless prints.
    • Mirror printing: Reverse an image or document for printing iron-on transfers. Click Layout, and then select the Flip horizontally option.
