Tip of the Day: Printing single-sided


Printers are set to print double-sided but you can determine whether your document will be double or single-sided. This can be done before you send your document to print. (No changes can be made once it has been sent to the printer.) Read our post and find
out how!

Word documents

When you are ready to print:

  1. Open your document and click on the FILE tab at the top left hand side of
    the screen.
  2. Choose Print. This will bring up the printing menu.
  3. Make sure to choose BW-pull-pcl on class –print.uoa.abdn.ac.uk, or COLOUR-pull-    pcl on class -print.uoa.abdn.ac.uk.
  4. In Settings, click on the drop down arrow in Print on Both Sides to get the choice: Print  One Sided. Choose the desired option and then send off the work to print by clicking on ‘Print’.

(You also have options for defining the size, orientation and margins of your
document, as well as the number of pages per sheet.)
