HP OfficeJet and Duplex Printing

HP Recommended
OfficeJet 5252
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I am trying to print a double sided document on my new OfficeJet 5252 printer and I gives me the option for duplex printing but everytime I click that option it tells me to flip the page manually. Do you have to flip the page manually with duplex printing? Is there a way I can change the settings to get the printer to do it automatically or will I always have to flip the pages myself?

Make sure the Automatic Duplexing option is enabled:

Enter Control Panel > Devices and Printers.
Right-click the printer icon, then click Printer Properties.
Click the Device Settings tab.
Set the Automatic Two-Sided Duplex Accessory as installed and click OK to save the change.

Now Automatic Duplexing should become available, select Flip on Short or Long side as required.
