Are you a Mac user looking to print front and back from your device? It’s a fairly easy process, but it can be difficult to know whee to begin if you’re new to printing with a Mac.

For most Mac users, the easiest way to print front and back is to use an app like Pages or Word. Both will allow you to create documents in ether format (front and back) and then print them directly from the app.

When printing from Pages or Word, you’ll need to ensure that your printer settings are set correctly. You can access this via the ‘Print’ dialog box whch can be found in the File menu. In the ‘Page Setup’ section, be sure to select ‘Two-sided Printing’ before printing your document. Once done, simply hit ‘Print’ and your document should be printed correctly on both sides of the page.

If you’d prefer not to use an app like Pages or Word, there are still ways for you to print front and back on a Mac. Open System Preferences by clicking on its icon in the Dock or selecting it from the Apple menu at the top-left of your screen. Then select ‘Printers & Scanners’ and select your printer from the list of available printers. Select ‘Options & Supplies’ then ‘Document Feeder’ followed by ‘Duplex Printing Unit’ (if available). From here, you will be able to choose beween single-sided printing or double-sided printing.

Once all of these settings have been adjusted accordingly, simply open up whichever file or document you would like to print and hit ‘Print’ – ensuring that any oter necessary settings such as paper size are also selected correctly beforehand – and your document should now print front and back!
