Can one batch rename files by only removing part of a word?

I have a bunch of files which I named something like 'shrunkJohnSmith01' 'shrunkJohnSmith02', 'shrunkJohnSmith03' etc. Is there a way or renaming these files not by adding but by subtracting, in this case it would be to remove 'shrunk' from the names of the files? thus making them, 'JohnSmith01' 'JohnSmith02', 'JohnSmith03' etc. Thank you

    Yes use batch rename… to do this… Use RegExp some thing like… .{6} replace with nothing… See pic
