How to Enable Color Printing using HP Universal Printing Driver on Windows 10

I had some troubles enabling color printing when I use the HP Universal Printing driver. After spending 15 minutes on figuring out how to do it. Decided to write a post about this so I don’t forget it again.

This is how you do it on a Windows 10 machine.

  • Click on Windows logo and search for Printers and scanners
  • Click on Printers and scanners
  • Click on the printer and click on Manage
  • Click on Printer properties
  • Click on Device Settings tab
  • Scroll down and find the Device Type
  • Set the Device Type to Color

Close the dialog and you should be able to print in color now.
