Using Duplex Printing

Some (but not all) printers support duplexing, meaning that they allow printing on both sides of a piece of paper. Assuming that you have a printer that supports duplexing, and that you have a printer driver that supports it, you can turn it on by following these steps:

  1. Press Ctrl+P to display the Print dialog box (Excel 2007) or printing options (Excel 2010 and Excel 2013).
  2. From the list of available printers, select the printer on which you want the document printed.
  3. Click on the Properties button (Excel 2007) or Printer Properties link (Excel 2010 and Excel 2013). Excel displays a Properties dialog box for the printer you selected.
  4. Look through the tabs in the dialog box to locate the controls for duplexing. They may be named something like Flip on Long Edge, Flip on Short Edge, or Print on Both Sides. (The exact wording depends on the type of printer driver you have installed.)
  5. Close the Properties dialog box.
  6. Use the controls in the Print dialog box (Excel 2007) or printing options (Excel 2010 and Excel 2013) to print your worksheet as you normally would.
