This document is a quick guide to Fritz 12. It was written so that someone inexperienced with computers and/or
Fritz 12 could start using Fritz 12 quickly and easily. Great care has been taken to ensure that this document is
technically accurate, but Fritz 12 is a complex product that is not well documented internally or on the Internet.
As such there may indeed be technical errors herein, but the author has worked hard to avoid them through care,
attention, and research. Additionally, this document has not been painstakingly or professionally proofed, as the
intent was to quickly better Fritz, chessplayers, and the art of chess itself, not dwell on minor edits,
inconsistencies, etc..
