It is possible to print on both sides of a sheet of paper. This is called duplex printing, and the option is available on most printers. The majority of these offer automatic duplex printing, while the rest require reinserting the pages manually after you are done printing on one side (manual duplex printing). First, see if your printer supports either of these two. Duplex printing is much easier than troubleshooting when Windows cannot connect to the printer.
To figure out whether automatic duplex printing is possible on your printer, check the manual or ask the printer manufacturer. Alternatively, do the following.
If the machine is a combination of printer and copy machine, and the latter supports two-sided copying, then the printer probably has an automatic duplex printing option. If Windows cannot connect to the printer for some reason, call a PC technician to fix that.
If your printer does not have the automatic duplex printing option, there are two ways to get around that. The first one is to print on one side of several sheets, and then manually feed these again, but face down. In Microsoft Word, you can take the following steps.
Word prompts you to turn the stack over and feed the pages back in. When using manual duplex printing, it is wise to confirm the right way to reload pages based on the printer model.
This is the second way to circumvent the lack of an automatic duplex printing option. Here, you will need to take the following steps.
