Printing document is one of the most difficult tasks in word 2016 that if a person doesn’t know, lots of papers will be damaged. For example, I’m going to print a hundred pages on both sides of the paper. It will take only 50 pages rather than 100 pages. If I would not know how to print these 100 pages on both sides of the paper, it means that I have wasted 50 more pages. Anyway, go to File Tab, click on Print section. You will see the screenshot below. Here you’ll see two sections. The first one is Print and the second one is Settings. On the Print part, you can choose that how many pages do like to copy from each page and as well as the Printer. You may have many printers on your network and you can select only a printer. On the second section, you can bring changes to the setting of your printer, like; Print All Pages, Print One Side, Collated, Portrait Orientation, Letter, Narrow Margins and 1 Page Per Sheet.
