Hi Friends 👋,

Welcome To Infinitbility! ❤️

To remove first character from string in react js, just use substring(1) method it will return new string based on provided index so if you pass 1 as parameter it returns the string without 0 index char.

The substring() method returns the part of the string between the start and end indexes, or to the end of the string.

Let’s take an example to remove first alphabet using the substring() method.

var str = "infinitbility";

// 👇️ Output
//   "nfinitbility"
