I'm not sure about the Epson, I have a HP and I went to printer properties, then the advanced tab and changed the defaults to black & white, draft mode. 'See if those settings are available for you Epson

You have to choose "black only" in the properties in the Printer Folder in Control panel, Printers and then hit apply, not in the print screen as you print something.

After setting it there did you hit apply and OK? Is the time and date on your taskbar on the bottom right of screen correct?
