Let’s say you have a string, and you want to remove the first character in it.

How can you do so?

One easy solution is to use the slice() method, passing 1 as parameter:

const text = 'abcdef'
const editedText = text.slice(1) //'bcdef'


Note that the slice() method does not modify the original string.

It creates a new string, this is why I assign it to a new variable in the above example.
