  • 1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button. In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of results, click Internet Explorer.

    2. Click the Tools button, point to Print, and then click Page setup.

    3. Under Paper Options, select the Print Background Colors and Images check box, and then click OK.

    Cf.: "Internet Explorer 9 accessibility options".

  • Hi,

    there are no GPO settings for Printing options>background colors. Users are have the option to change their printing settings.

    you could use GPO to disable access to the Page setup menu. File>Page setup, and other menu options in IE that affects global or local hardware settings.

    Regards.

    ... anther workaround is to use a userstylesheet, that sets the background colors and text colors of all documents using the media=print css rule.
