How to Print Double-Sided (Duplex Printing) in Word

Double-sided printing or duplex printing is printing on both sides of the paper, like printing in books. Double-sided printing helps the environment by cutting the number of pages required for printing in half—thereby cutting down overall paper usage substantially. Sometimes, specific documents also require duplex printing, such as when printing a book or journal.

Printing basically depends on the type and functionality of the printer attached to the computer.

While some printers offer automated double-sided printing, many do not.

With Microsoft Word, it is possible to print double-sided on all types of printers, allowing three methods of duplex printing—one each for printers that can print double-sided and flip papers automatically, for printers that can print double-sided but require manual paper flipping, and for regular manual printers. These are three methods:

  • Automatic Double Sided Printing – For printers supporting double-sided printing
  • Printing using Manual Flip – For printers which require a manual flip
  • Manual Double-sided printingFor standard printers

How to Insert a Horizontal Line in Google Docs

It’s useful to learn how to insert a line in Google Docs for several reasons. Horizontal lines are useful for dividing your document into different sections, especially if it’s lengthy. They improve the layout of your text, making it more readable. For example, you can use horizontal lines to create an organized and neat-looking resume.

How to Insert Page Numbers in Word Without Losing the Header

For many, this is a frustrating problem—once the header is set up to satisfaction, inserting the page number causes the header to vanish, and reintroducing the header makes the page number go away—the two are seemingly mutually exclusive.

Here is what I am talking about

Let us start with a blank document, without header or page number.

Click on the Insert tab on the Menu Bar. The Ribbon changes to the Insert Menu. Click on Header and select any one of the Blanks to insert as Header. Here, we have chosen Austin, but any one of them will do.

To identify the header, we have named it My Document. Click on Page Number and insert a page number at the Top of Page.

You will get the page number, but unfortunately, it has replaced the header you had inserted earlier.

The above anomaly happens because Word treats both the Header and the Page Number as building blocks, and each will replace the other. So how to get both?

How to insert Page number without losing the header?

In this post, I will share 2 methods:

  • Insert Page number in Footer
  • Insert Page number in Header

How to change your Google Doc to landscape orientation

The default orientation of any word processing software- such as Word and Google Docs- is portrait.

However, by following a few simple steps, you can change the orientation of a page to the landscape mode. In this article, we will be focusing on how to do this in Google Docs.

There are some situations when the landscape mode is more useful than portrait mode.

For example, a table with a lot of columns fits better in the landscape orientation as it requires more horizontal space than a smaller table.

It’s also useful when you have large pictures in your document or when you want to insert several pictures side-by-side.

You can also use the landscape mode when you want to include a chart with a long x-axis in your document.

How to Add Page Numbers in Word

Using page numbers in long documents helps in many ways. Word offers an easy method of inserting page numbers where you want them in your document. There are two ways of doing this—the simple way and the complicated.

The simple way of inserting a page number is beginning with a “1” on page 1 of the document. A more complicated way would be to introduce the numbering from a page other than the first page.
