When speaking about printers, some people say “black and white” for “monochrome” or “greyscale.” The on-screen manual for the Canon MP640 printer is a zipped application that takes several minutes to download and install. However, it is worth installing for further printing enquiries. Search for “grayscale” rather than “greyscale” in the on-screen manual. Canon uses the American English spelling.
