Printing a PDF in web browser will only print in color.

Client that has Acrobat set to print in B&W by default is wondering how to set web pages to print PDF they are viewing in IE9 as B&W?  I am not asking how to change the properties every single time they print, as we are aware of that option.  Need the default to be B&W.  Acrobat reader currently is set to B&W and that works fine outside of IE9.

Don't know why you are getting a timeout....it opens right up when I click on it.  Anyway, ere is what was advised in the link:

install your printer software again and that will show up in the control panel as 2 printers, rename one color printer and the other one black and white and then set up the color printer to the settings you use for printing photos (kind of paper ,color, etc.) then set upt the other one for printing in greyscale (kind of paper etc.) and make that one your default printer, then when you print anything off the internet it will automatically print in balck and white and it will print very fast, if you do want to print color when you open print menu just select color printer. I have been using this method for years and it works perfect

Since I haven't gotten any better suggestions, I am closing this question.  It is still a workaround, but it does work.  The clients like to just hit print, but they will have to do with either color or the extra step.

Thanks for the responses.
