If you go to your printers and faxes page on windows you be able change and save the duplex option. That should save it as your default.

Right click on the 9500 printer and select properties. Within one of those tabs should be the duplex option. You might need to go the the options tab first and tell it you have a duplexer installed.

Won't that affect all employees ?

I forgot to add that if we change the properties for the printer itself, I am afraid that it will all affect all employees that might be do not like this type of setting

It will only affect the computer you make the change on. I was not refering to make changes on the server, if that is possible. I don't work on servers only printers.

Do you mean the property of the printer if it has been modified, it will effect my PC onely , not the rest of employees ?

No if you set it on the workstation under the printers installed on the workstation ( NOT THE SERVER ) it will only affect printing to that printer for your logon on that workstation. Any other user that logs onto that workstation and had that printer installed would print single sided. It is only for the users that it is set under and affects no one els on the workstation or anywheere else.

On the workstation you want to change it for go to the properties then Select Printing Preferences, under those preferences select Finishing and under Finishing you have the options to " Print on Both Sides" to  set it to duplex . you also have th option to print book style if needed once you set it to Duplex.
