Open the document, and then click File > Print. Select your printer, and then click Printer Properties, Preferences, or Printer Setup. From the print settings, select the option for a two-sided print job.
Open the file to be printed, then open the printer Properties dialog box. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab, and then click Two-sided, duplex, printing (see Figure below). In the Print on both sides drop-down list, click Automatically (see Figure above). Select any other print settings wanted, and then click OK.
These duplex printing is not working problems can be fixed by reinstalling applications, resetting settings and preferences. Sometimes some OS files, as well as drivers, can get out of date and trigger issues with performance or program procedures.
HP® is proud to offer both inkjet printers and laser printers that are capable of double-sided printing. Inkjet printers have some very distinguishable differences from laser printers.
What is auto duplex printing? Auto duplex printing simply means that your printer can automatically print on both sides of your paper. Many newer printers feature this function. Some older models, however, require you to manually flip the pages so they can be printed on both sides.
Put the side to be printed on first, face-up, with the leading edge (top) of the paper in first. To print the second side, put the paper face down, with the leading edge (top) of the paper in first. If letterhead paper is used, this would be put in with the heading face down, and in first.
Print multiple pages on a sheet

Note: This option is available only when the publication page size is small enough that more than one page can fit on a single sheet of paper. Click File > Print. Under Settings, click One page per sheet, and then choose Multiple pages per sheet in the list. Click Print.

As the option for “Two-sided” if greyed out in the Print window, please make sure that your printer has the dual side printing capabilities. Also, make sure that the box for “Duplex Unit” in the printer settings is checked. To check that, go to Settings > Printers & Scanners.
