Depending on which operating system is in use, some printers will print back pages upside down when using the duplex printing feature. If your system configuration causes the back pages to print upside down, select the appropriate option from this field to correct the problem.

The options available in this drop-down list vary depending on the selected printer. Some potential options and their uses are discussed below.

  • To print an envelope, select Envelope.
  • To manually feed paper into the printer, select Manual feed.
