    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.

    these are the settings that i have on my computer now, but when i restart my computer the settings will automatically be reverted to the the text and Image box and then the black only will be UN-checked

    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?
