Paste the script below into a text file with a .cmd extension.  Customize the value of the folder variable with the location of the folder containing the .jpg files.  Running the script will echo commands to remove the -11 suffix from each filename.  Once you have tested it successfully, remove the ECHO from line 8 to rename the files.


@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
 
set folder=c:\files
set mask=*-11.jpg
 
for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('dir "%folder%\%mask%" /A:-D /B') do (
 set newname=%%~nG
 ECHO ren "%folder%\%%G" "!newname:~0,-3!%%~xG"
)
 
pause

Open in new window
