How do you change the Default to print single sided pages from double sided.  I have to manually change it every print job



Hi ScottXB,


Welcome to the Canon Forums and thanks for your post!


To have a better understanding of your issue, please let everyone know what operating system (Windows Vista/7/8 or Mac OS 10.X) you are using. That way, the community will be able to assist you with suggestions appropriate for your product.


Please use the operational panel on the printer:


<Menu>  <Function Settings>  <Printer>  <Printer Settings>  <2-Sided Printing>  Select <Off>


In the Windows OS Printer Properies open the printer driver, please perform the following:


Click on [Basic Settings] tab.
Click on the down arrow [1-sided / 2-sided Printing].
Select [1-sided].
Click on  [OK] button at the bottom.


Open a program and print.


If the program you are printing from will not accept made in the driver, you can create a custom default or have to change to 1-sided each time.


If you continue to have difficulties, please contact our support group using the following link:
