My printer used to print double sided automatically when I gave the command in Powerpoint, Word etc.
No it doesn't any more. It indicates a yellow triangle that says MANUAL 2-sided printing.
How can I set it back to doing the double sided printing automatically?

On your computer go to control panel>devices and printers and then right click on the icon for your printer and select printer properties from the drop down menu. Click on the advanced tab to confirm that  the driver is still using an HP driver and not a Microsoft IPP driver. The driver sometimes gets replaced when Windows Updates are installed. Once you are sure you have an HP driver, click on the device settings tab, scroll down till you see the duplex unit option and change it to "installed".
