You can use pathlib.Path objects. It has
suffix attributes, and a rename method:
import re from pathlib import Path for file in Path(r'C:\tmp').glob('*'): if not file.is_file(): continue new_name = re.sub('\d','', file.stem) + file.suffix file.rename(file.parent/new_name)
parent attribute gives the folder the file belongs to and the
is_file method is used to check that we are handing a regular file (and not a folder). New Path objects are created easily with the
/ operator (full new filepath is
file.parent / new_name).
re.sub() is used to replace the numbers (
\d means a digit) in the old filename
