I want to remove GUID from string. Guid start with | character. I can remove guid using [0-9a-fA-F]{8}\-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}\-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}\-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}\-[0-9a-fA-F]{12}, but how to find results starting wiht |?

Currently Mr Nice |d60205ce-e85e-48d4-8cf5-8ab55ba641dc would be "Mr Nice |" , but I need to remove first "|". Result should be Mr Nice.

(.*)\|(\w*-){4}\w*

Your desired result will be in group 1.

Or, if you only want to delete the GUID, use:
\|(\w*-){4}\w*
