How to remove the first character of a string in Python?

January 01, 2021

You can remove the first character of a string using Python easily by removing the first index of the string.

string = "abcdef";
print(string[1:]) # bcdef

[1:] means get the string starting from index 1 to the end. Also, you can use it with any index using this syntax: string[start:stop].
