In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to remove the first n characters of a string in JavaScript.

Consider, we have the following string:

const car = "loremipsum";

Now, we want to remove the first 2 characters vol from the above string.

Removing the first 2 characters

To remove the first n characters of a string in JavaScript, we can use the built-in slice() method by passing the n as an argument.

n is the number of characters we need to remove from a string.

Here is an example, that removes the first 3 characters from the following string.

const char = "loremipsum";

const rchar = char.slice(2);

console.log(rchar);

Output:

"remipsum"

Similarly, we can also use the substring() method to remove the first n characters of a string.

const char = "loremipsum";

const rchar = char.substring(2);

console.log(rchar);

Output:

"remipsum"
