How to STOP duplex printing using MS WORD on a MAC

HP Recommended
macOS 10.12 Sierra

Attempted to use WORD to print several pages using HP Color LaserJet 452dw. I did NOT want two-sided as these were individual letters to different people. The print dialogue box in WORD does not have an option to turn the two-sided option on or off, it just prints two-sided by default. Researching other responses were no help, as they all suggested to uncheck the two-sided option box. There was no option since this box doesn't appear in WORD.

My solution was to use the "Open PDF in Preview", using the "PDF" dropdown box in the lower left corner of the print dialogue screen in WORD. Now when you select File/Print, the option appears to either turn the two-sided option on or off.

Hi,
Follow these steps to disable two sided printing:

Open the file you would like to print. From the File menu select Print. The Print window appears.

NOTE: The Print window might be minimized. Click the Show Details button to see all available settings.

Click the settings drop down, it will usually appear as the name of the program (e.g. TextEdit)
Will appear as Copies & Pages within Microsoft Office applications.

Select Layout from the drop-down menu.

Set the Two-Sided option as Off.

You may save the settings as a preset by clicking Presets > Save Current Settings as Preset...

By doing so and completing the print job these settings will remain default till another preset will be used in the future.

Regards,
Shlomi
