Hi,

I have a string which is as follows; name_thumb.jpg

What I want to do is remove the _thumb part of the string so it reads name.jpg.  How can I do this?

You can use regex:
string newName = Regex.Replace(oldName, "_thumb", "");

Eazy way out is:
      check this sample:
        Dim a As String = "A_thumb.txt"
        a = a.Replace("_thumb", "")
        MsgBox(a)

OR

use mid funtion
check this sample which will do task:-
to read in files named with a format of nnnnnn.nnnnnn_xx and strip out the (.) and add a(.dxf) extension.
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim objFSO As New FileSystemObject
    Dim objFolder As Folder
    Dim objFile As File
    Dim strNewFileName As String
    Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("C:\Testing")  'Repalce the path with your path
    For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
        strNewFileName = Mid(objFile.Name, 1, 6) & Mid(objFile.Name, 8) & ".dxf"
        objFile.Name = strNewFileName
    Next
End Sub

the string class has its own Replace method, you can use that:

string currentName = "name_thumb.jpg";
string newName = currentName.Replace("_thumb", string.Empty);
