Printer Setup Issue in Excel

Occasional Visitor

Excel was correctly printing a small workbook I am building - until I changed margins in the excel print dialog menu to a custom setting (slightly smaller with no header or footer than the narrow defaults). Then the print double-sided option disappeared from the print dialog menu. I changed margins back to normal, closed and reopened the excel file, rebooted the laptop, and rebooted the HP 8600 printer multiple times, but the double-sided option does not reappear. Going deeper in option settings for the printer shows no place to change this setting at any level. Yet the option and the settings for double-sided all used to be there. Can anyone tell me what is going on? And what to do about it? Printing only one-sided seems such a waste of trees...
