Python Program to Capitalize the First Character of a String

In this example, you will learn to capitalize the first character of a string.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of the following Python programming topics:

Two strings are said to be anagram if we can form one string by arranging the characters of another string. For example, Race and Care. Here, we can form Race by arranging the characters of Care.

Example 1: Using list slicing

my_string = "programiz is Lit"

print(my_string[0].upper() + my_string[1:])


Programiz is Lit

In the above example, my_string[0] selects the first character and upper() converts it to uppercase. Likewise, my_string[1:] selects the remaining characters as they are. Finally they are concatenated using +.

Example 2: Using inbuilt method capitalize()

my_string = "programiz is Lit"

cap_string = my_string.capitalize()



Programiz is lit

Note: capitalize() changes the first character to uppercase; however, changes all other characters to lowercase.
