More than likely your business spends a substantial amount of money on the costs of printing, unless your company has gone the completely paperless route. Oftentimes, people may forget to select the “double-sided” feature while printing. If your printer is able to print on both sides without having to reload the paper every single time, then this article is for you. Continue reading to learn how you can do this in Microsoft Word and never have to worry about having to select the option again.

How to Print Double-Sided in Microsoft Word

To print double-sided in Microsoft Word, you have to go to the “File” tab. From there, you select “Print”. This will open a window that contains all of your printing options. Another way to open the print options window that might be easier for some is “Ctrl + P”.  Under the print settings, you will find a dropdown menu that contains different kinds of settings as they relate to printing. You will then see a setting that is by default set to “Print One-Sided.” In order to print on both sides of the paper, you will need to change this setting.

You will see different options to “Print on Both Sides,” such as an option to flip the page on the long end or flip the page on the short back. This is a personal preference. It depends on how you want the information to show on the other side. For instance, printing a brochure in landscape mode is best suited on the short end. While printing a normal document in portrait mode is best done on the long end.

Things to Know:

It is important to remember that you do not want to manually print on both sides of the paper since it wastes a lot more time. If your printers are able to print on both sides, the company can save a considerable amount of money by printing on both sides of the paper as well as helping the environment since doing this will reduce paper waste. By going paperless, you will save even more as well as make a bigger difference for our planet.
