Selecting Double-sided Printing Settings - Windows

You can print on both sides of the paper by selecting one of the 2-sided printing options on the Main or Page Layout tab. (Some options are not available on the Main tab.)
Automatic double-sided printing is only available if you have loaded plain paper in these sizes: Letter (8.5 × 11 inches [216 × 279 mm]) and A4 (8.3 × 11.7 inches [210 × 297 mm]).
Note: Some options may be unavailable, depending on other settings you have chosen.
