Set One-sided Print as Default

Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw
Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

I can't find option to change two-sided printing to one-side.  I only want to print one-sided and would prefer this as my default.  Can't find instructions for this in the manual.  I need to change the default.  Any idea how to do this?

Set One-sided Print as Default

Hi @hazelton407,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Forums!
 
I see that you would like the option to turn off the two-sided option on your HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw Printer. I would be happy to help and please remember to return to this thread and mark 'Accept as Solution' if I have successfully helped you resolve the issue. If you wish to say 'thanks' for my effort to help, click the 'thumbs up' to give me a Kudos. 
 
I understand the frustration that you're experiencing. You can save a new preset so when you do not want to print two-sided that will be much easier.
 
To save a preset without two-sided selected, follow these steps.
Start by opening Preview
Select your HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw.
Choose Layout from the print options pop-up menu
Unselect Two-Sided
Select Presets at the top
Choose Save Current Settings as Presets.... Give your preset a name and press save.
 
This will save your preferences for next time.
 
NOTE: When printing ensure that the preset is selected. 
 
I hope this information was helpful. Please respond to this post with the results. I look forward to hearing from you. Good Luck! 🙂

Set One-sided Print as Default

Product:  LaserJet Pro MFPM227fdw   Monochrome    O/S     X Yosemite 10.10.5 

I would like to have the option to turn off the two-sided print feature.

 

A prior message indicated opening Preview and Selecting the Printer.  When I open Preview, I am not seeing this option. Please advise.  Thanks
