My mom claims are printer uses a bunch of colors to make black and white. When I look at the ink levels, sure enough yellow and cyan are really low.

I'm not a huge printer guy, so is this the norm? Or is the printer we have stupid. It's a pretty nice looking Cannon printer. Any idea how to change this or is this how it's suppose to be OR should we just get a new printer.

it will if you have shades of black.

when you print, select black and white option.

I tried that and it ended up coming out blue. Some of the area didn't even come out. I'm literally just trying to print out shipping labels. Here's a screenshot of my ink levels: https://gyazo.com/6deedd5b39e2ce78029cda787eec4393
