Recently, when printing, the printer is using both sides of the paper, even when we do not want it to. There is no option to turn it off when printing a Word document.
When printing from Pages it does show a checked box that says TWO-SIDED, if I uncheck, then it works.
But from Word there is no option. I've tried File/Preferences, I've tried via settings on the printer and nothing we can find will fix this? This has just recently (last week or two) become a problem...

Thank you for your reply but this did not solve the overall issue of having hp items that start printing two-sided as default. I think it is caused from an HP software update. HP needs to allow an At the printer default NO Two-sided printing. I think I speak for many that this is very very annoying!!! E
