Changing your computer to default to 1 sided printing

To make 1-sided option available at all times for all print jobs, complete the following...

  1. Open a Microsoft Word document.
  2. Go to Print, as if you were printing the document.
  3. Pull down on the printer bar and choose “Secure_Color_Printer”. You need to use the Secure Color and NOT the Secure B&W printer.
  4. Click on the “Copies & Pages” pull down bar.
  5. Drag down to “Finishing”.
  6. Click on the Print Style, “2-sided Printing” and choose “1-sided Printing”.
  7. To save this setting, so click on the “Default Settings” and drag down to “Save Current Setting as Preset…”.
  8. Name this current setting as “Default Settings-1” and click on the button next to “All Printers”. If you forget to do this, this will not work.

Changing from 2-sided to 1-sided in Chrome Printing:

The system default doesn’t always hold in Chrome printing. When you print from Chrome, you should see a window that looks like the one below

If you see the Options Box, simply uncheck the Two-sided. If you don’t see this box, then click on “+More” and you should see the box to uncheck.
