Disabling Double-Sided Printing?

Product Name: hp pagewide MFP 377dw
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

Ok... So I feel a little stupid to ask, but how on earth do you disable the 2-sided printing? We run wireless to the printer. I have looked for the option when setting up the printer when I'm on my laptop to print, but there is no option to change to 1-sideed. I have gone driectly up to the printer to change printing settings to 1-sided, but it doesn't do that and has the default at 2-sided (see pic attached). I'm not sre why it will not print 1-to-1, but if I can get a solution, that would be optimal. If anyone can help me sort this out, that would be excellent. In the meantime, I have to print single pages at one time, then go to the next. Thanks.

Re: Disabling Double-Sided Printing?

Hi,
Follow these steps to disable two sided printing:

Open the file you would like to print. From the File menu select Print. The Print window appears.

NOTE: The Print window might be minimized. Click the Show Details button to see all available settings.

Click the settings drop down, it will usually appear as the name of the program (e.g. TextEdit)
Will appear as Copies & Pages within Microsoft Office applications.

Select Layout from the drop-down menu.

Set the Two-Sided option as Off.

You may save the settings as a preset by clicking Presets > Save Current Settings as Preset...

By doing so and completing the print job these settings will remain default till another preset will be used in the future.

Regards,
Shlomi

Re: Disabling Double-Sided Printing?

Thank you. My "settings" wasn't labled, but after poking around a bit more, I found what you were explaining. Thank you, again! Smiley Happy
