Question about renaming

I have a fairly large group of files whose filenames are prefixed with dates formated like this:
What I want to do is use the Rename tool to just strip the first 11 characters from selected filenames, the remaining characters in the filenames will be unique

I tried to type ? 11 times but it was not accepted, I am not skilled in regular expressions,
something like
if that makes any sense

This should do it:

Mode: RegEx + F&R
Old name: ^.{11}
New name: empty
Ignore extension: checked

Or just record a macro.
