Printing Both Sides

I prefer a hard copy when looking up a "how to" item but I found so many that my three ring binder filled fast. Then I realized I was only using half the space available. Next time you print out a large document use both sides of the page. Just manually select all the odd pages first (title pages are even since the next page is page one) then advance the paper an extra page before you detach it. Now, reinsert the paper on the other side being sure to line up to start on the same page as the first printed odd page. Now print out the even numbered pages and you will have saved space and done your bit for ecology, too!

If you're really ambitious you can cut and paste all the odds or evens to a second document and print each document to a side.
