Calibre File Names

Sorry if this has been asked before, but Mobileread won't allow a search for "file name", since "name" is too common a word...

Can anybody tell me how to set Calibre so that is doesn't place the "The" in a book title to the end of the name?

For example:

"Stephen King - The Dead Zone.mobi" (The way I want it)
instead of
"Stephen King - Dead Zone, The.mobi" (the way Calibre does it)

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to MobileRead!
Try Preferences>Import/Export>Adding books.
Then you probably need to search for the regular expression that suits your filenames; it has been much discussed and you can find lot of examples.

it is under tweaks in preferences

# Control how title and series names are formatted when saving to disk/sending
# to device. If set to library_order, leading articles such as The and A will
# be put at the end
# If set to 'strictly_alphabetic', the titles will be sorted without processing
# For example, with library_order, "The Client" will become "Client, The". With
# strictly_alphabetic, it would remain "The Client".
save_template_title_series_sorting = 'strictly_alphabetic'

Be aware: It's not retroactively applied. You need to recalculate the title to get it to change. It doesn't change just because you change the tweak.
