    You don't say what model printer, but this should be able to be set in the Properties for that printer under each user's login.  I.E. Login as a particular user, check the printer Properties, set to duplex (or non-duplex as appropriate).  Those settings should hold for that user only.

    Note - you may have to login with an administrator login and check permissions for the printer.
