Is there a possibility to create a configuration profile in Intune to apply a policy that changes the printer configuration of registered devices to print only in black and white? or leave this function by default?

If there is no possibility through the configuration profile and you can do it through a powershell command, it will be a good option too.

    @Samuel Santos,Thanks for posting in Q&A.

    From your description, I know you want to configure printer to print only in black and white via Intune.

    Based on my research, there is no direct feature in Intune, however, we can create a PowerShell script to set printer to print only in black and white.

    Here are some steps you can refer.

    1.Create a .ps1 file with the content below and manually test it on one device.

    #Get the name of the printer

    $printerName = "Your Printer Name"

    #Set the printer to print in black and white

    Set-PrintConfiguration -PrinterName $printerName -Color $False

    2.If the script work properly, then upload it into Intune and configure as below.

    3.Deploy it via Intune, then it will work.

    Hope it will help.
