duplex printing

HP 4250
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP 4250 wants to do everything in duplex.  After a windows update recently it would not do duplex at all and we had our tech fix that - now it wants to duplex everything.

duplex printing

Hi @San-RA


Welcome to the HP Support Community. 


When you set up a duplex printing job, the settings might carry over to the next print job. To change to one-sided printing, turn off the duplex setting in the print window or driver settings.
To preserve duplex or one-sided settings for future print jobs, click the Printing Shortcut tab in the print settings window, and then select one of the document-related shortcuts. Change the duplex setting, select User Specified Print Settings, and then click Save As.


Try these steps to disable "Print on both sides" - 


1) In the search box, type and open "Printers and Scanners". 

2) Click on default printer > Click on "Manage" > Click on "Printing Preferences".

3) Select "None" for Print on both sides under the Layout tab.
