My printer, a HP J6480, is capable of double sided printing. However, to select or deselect this feature requires about 4 or 5 down menu selections. Is it possible to have a "switch" on the start bar, or elsewhere where it is always displayed, that will toggle between both selections? If so, how can I implement this feature?

Sure its possible. I'm not sure how to do it other than deconstructing the printer drivers in order to do it though.

I was thinking of something like a script that just went and toggled the 1-side, 2-side feature. They do it with many menu selections to get there---was hoping to just go there and do it without major software changes. Not efficient or elegant, just would add a little to the bloat---but work.
