    See below.

    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 tab.

    Note: Some options may be pre-selected or unavailable, depending on other settings you have chosen or if you are accessing the product over a network.

      • Auto (Long-edge binding) to print your double-sided print job by automatically flipping the paper on the long edge.
      • Auto (Short-edge binding) to print your double-sided print job by automatically flipping the paper on the short edge.
      • Manual (Long-edge binding) to print your double-sided print job by printing one side and prompting you to flip the paper over on the long edge to print the other side (recommended for paper types that do not support automatic duplexing).
