"Prints" a blank back side for a 1 page document

HP Recommended
Photosmart 6520
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

With multipage documents, I prefer to print 2-sided but when I print a 1 page document, it "prints" the blank back side anyway.  Any way to prevent that short of changing the options just for that document?

Sorry, no.  If the printer is set for duplex printing it will send both sides through even if the back side is blank.

Thanks, but that seems terminally (npi) stupid.

You could make a copy of your printer, name it something like "SS 6520" and set its default to single sided printing.  Then when you have single pages to print send to the SS 6520 copy rather than the other one.
