How do I print on both sides of a sheet of paper?

To print, you will first need to be connected to the central printers (How do I do that?)

In Microsoft word, you need to:

  • Select File, then Print
  • Make sure that either BlackAndWhite or Colour on 
  • Select print on both sides from the dropdown menu on the left hand side
  • Your document will now print doublesided


From other programs, you need to:

  • Open your Document
  • Click on the File in the top left corner of the screen
  • Click Print and select one of the printers that will perform duplex printing
  • Click on the Printer Properties button
  • Choose the Layout tab
  • Under Print Type select 2-Sided
  • This should print your document on both sides of a sheet of paper
