If the Printer can print double sided (many printers cannot do this), the print manager that comes up when you print will have a double sided option under Properties. Check there (all tabs if more than one tab).

My HP 8610 prints double sided and I do what I said above here to activate double sided printing.

Printers are different so you will have to look through the property settings and see if the option is available.

The Laser Jet 2320nf does not have a built-in duplex unit, so printing on both sides can only be achieved using manual duplexing.

I don't know which drivers support the 'manual duplex' option.

The LaserJet Enterprise flow M830 Multifunction Printer series models all include a built-in duplex unit, so printing on both sides can only be achieved using automatic duplexing..

What are the problems you get when trying to print on both sides? Does the paper feeder not take the paper properly when you re-insert it to print the other side? Please give more details.

You tell it to print only the odd pages first (page 1,3,5 and so on), and then when those have been printed, put them back into the paper tray with the side that has already been printed to facing downward (at least that would be the case with most printers), and the first of the already printed pages on top of the pack, and then print the even pages of your document.

Some printer drivers that come with printers that have no duplex module installed like your printer still allow you to set duplex within the driver. On one HP printer driver I have it has this option in the "Printing Shortcuts" tab under "Print on both sides". There I can select between "Yes, flip over", "Yes, flip up" or "no". If I select one of those options that have "Yes", I can then print the complete document, and when ready the printer's driver will pop up a message on the PC's display how to put which paper back into the try, and then to press "OK" on the printer's console to continue printing.

This is known as 'manual duplex'; the option is not offered by all drivers.

For printer models (like the M830) which do have a hardware duplex unit (and which can therefore do 'automatic duplex'), make sure that the driver knows that the duplex unit is there: from the Printer Properties dialogue, select the Device Settings tab, and ensure that the duplex unit is Installed rather than Not installed.
