Force ImageRunner 6255i Single sided

[ Edited ]

I am running Windows 8.1 and have a Canon Image Runner 62551.


I am using a GENERIC / TEXT ONLY driver. (I cannot change this fact)


When i map to this printer and check the properties it lists the following features:

Color: NO

Double-sided: NO

Staple: NO


Maximum resolution: 600 DPI


Everything works fine, but it always prints double sided. Is there any option in the printer settings itself to force single sided.


I have no option in Windows to select single sided under Printing Preferences or Printer Properties because the driver is so basic. (Again, i cannot change the fact that it is GENERIC / TEXT ONLY)


I tried printing from Word 2013, Notepad, Notepad++ and all give double sided results.


Any help is appreciated.
