How Do I Print Double-Sided Documents From VIU Printers?

Display the Print settings

In Microsoft Office programs (e.g. Word, Publisher), click on the File tab in the top left corner of the screen and click on the Print command. 

Select the Printer settings

1. Select the appropriate printer (black & white or colour) and click on the Print One Sided dropdown menu
2. Click on Print on Both Sides.
3. Click the Print icon at the top to send your print job. 

Release your print job

Proceed with entering a username and password at a Print Release Station to release the job. Please note that printing double-sided will not affect the number of pages in your print job or the cost of printing (you will be charged 10¢ per side printed in black and white, and 50¢ per side printed in colour).
