Many printers support duplex printing, but they don't all make the duplex option available in the same way. With some desktop printers, choosing duplex means that the printer prints all of the copies of the first side of a page, then pauses and asks you to flip the sheets that it just printed and return them to the printer, after which it prints all of the copies of the second side. This method is called manual duplexing.
To print on both sides of a sheet of paper:
On the File menu, click Print.
In the Print dialog box, in the Name list, select the printer that you want to use.
Note The information in the Properties dialog box varies depending upon the manufacturer of the printer you're using. With some printers, you will see a Layout tab with a Print on both sides option on it. With other printers, you might see a Features tab, and the duplex option might be called something like Two-sided printing. Explore the various tabs in the Properties dialog box until you locate the duplex printing option.
Choose the duplex printing option that you want.
The options will be called something like Long edge (or Flip on long edge) and Short edge (or Flip on short edge). Whether it's better for the paper to be flipped on the short edge or the long edge depends upon the type of publication you're printing. You might need to print a test publication or two to discover which option works best.
Click OK to close the Properties dialog box, and then click OK again to close the Print dialog box and print your publication.
If you print to an IS networked printer the printer will automatically print on both sides of the paper (duplex). This saves paper but, because it is print toner which is the largest part of the cost, charges are the same as printing on two sheets of paper.
If you wish to print duplex to another printer (NB not all printers support duplex printing) you must:
Many of these wont' print edge to edge but there may be a setting for it. start>printers (might be in control panel in yours) slect properties for the printer and advanced proterties then printing preferences (specific to your printer) and see if there are any settings. many of these have a 3/4" blank are down one side where it feeds the paper. try to rotate the print 180 (in your print settings) if possible.
Make sure the paper aligning slides are tight to the sides of the
paper. In the case that they are spring loaded make sure there is not
something preventing them from holding the paper properly aligned.
The print head could be 'off-track'...
If the text is properly aligned on the edge of the page, but appears
crooked it is related to the print head assembly. If the text is not
aligning to the edge of the page then the paper is not feeding straight
and the paper aligning slides are at fault.
It is also possible that one of the paper feed rollers are not grasping
the paper and it is forcing it to one side as it pulls it in.
