Printing Double Sided

You can print double-sided (or duplex) with a given printer, if:

  • The printer supports double-sided printing. To determine this, visit http://bombay/printers, look for the printer you'd like to use, and see if the Comments column mentions Duplex. If it does not, then it is likely the printer is not capable of double-sided printing.
  • This option was enabled when the printer was installed on your computer.

Start out with these steps to check if your printer has been configured to print duplex:

  1. Open the application that you will be using to print (e.g. Microsoft Word).
  2. Click on the File menu and click Print. The Print dialog window appears.
  3. Click on Presets drop-down list. If there is an option titled "Double-Sided" or "Duplex", continue with these steps. Otherwise, skip to the instructions under "Create a preset setting" below, then come back to these steps once you're done.
  4. Click Print to print the document double-sided.
  5. When you want to print double-sided in the future, select the Double Sided option under the Presets menu. When you want to print single-sided, use the Standard option under the Presets menu. These settings are saved across all applications.

Create a Duplex preset setting

Follow these steps after reaching the Print dialog box in any application (see the above steps).

  1. From the Copies and Pages drop-down list, select Layout.
    Note: If you do not see the Copies and Pages option, click on the arrow next to the printer's name. The Copies and Pages option should become visible.
  2. Choose the Long-edge binding option under the Two-Sided heading.
    Note: If the Two-Sided option is grayed out, the printer is not capable of double-sided printing or you need to reinstall the printer using the correct driver (follow the steps at the beginning of this document).
  3. Save the duplex setting:
    • From Presets drop-down list select Save As. The Save Preset dialog box opens.
    • In the Save Preset As field, type Double Sided.
    • Click Add.
