Getting My Printer to Print Both Sides of the Page

HP Recommended
HP OfficeJet 3830
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, how would I get my printer to print both sides of a page so as not to waste too much paper?

 

When I try to print both sides of a page, I would be asked to flip the paper to its side after it finishes printing the first page, but when I do that, it doesn't seem to work.

 

Please help.
