Hi there,

Through server we have made our printer to print double sided by default. we have a situation, if any user change setting to single sided and prints out its not moving back to double sided till they log off and log back in.
Is there any way that we can force them to move back to double sided once they finish with printing single sided without logoff from computer.

Thanks
Ram.

Are you 100% sure this setting is resetted only by logoff / logon?

I remember, if i used for example MS Word, printed with a changed setting, and i closed Word again, it's back to default settings..   Watch out, Outlook also has to be closed for this one since Outlook (attached) to Word.

I don't have the oppurtunity to test it right now, but probably you can do it yourself....

Yes i have tested couple of times. If you try to print new document without logging off it prints single sided as well, but if logg off and login again print it does print double sided. I believe group policy get updated  after log back in. so, is there any way that we can force them to make it default double sided all the times unless they want to print single sided for selected document by themselves.
