# Convert Set to List in Python (5 Examples)

Welcome! This tutorial will show you 5 simple ways of converting a set to a list in Python programming.

First, though, here is a quick glance at the tutorial:

Letâ€™s get into it!

## Create Sample Set

Run the code below in your Python IDE to create a sample set.

`my_set = {1, 2, 3}`

## Example 1: list() Function

In this example, we will use the Python `list()` function to convert the set into a list.

```my_set = {1, 2, 3}
my_list = list(my_set)
print(my_list)

# [1, 2, 3]```

## Example 2: sorted() Function

Here, we will use the Python `sorted()` function to convert the set into a list.

```my_list = sorted(my_set)
print(my_list)

# [1, 2, 3]```

## Example 3: `*` Operator

In this next example, we will use the `*` operator to convert the set into a list.

```my_list = [*my_set]
print(my_list)

# [1, 2, 3]```

## Example 4: List Comprehension

Here, we will use list comprehension to convert the set into a list.

```my_list = [x for x in my_set]
print(my_list)

# [1, 2, 3]```

## Example 5: For Loop

In this last example, we will use a for loop to convert the set into a Python list.

```my_list = []
for i in my_set:
my_list.append(i)

print(my_list)

# [1, 2, 3]```

Thatâ€™s it! I hope you found this tutorial helpful.
