What do you mean with "bitcoin core"? Do you mean your Bitcoins? If so, you can export your private keys from your Bitcoin core wallet and import them into Electrum wallet.
In order to help you, however, you must specify your request.

If you mean sending BTC from your Bitcoin Core(full node) wallet to your electrum wallet, then simply create a new Electrum wallet, and simply send your funds over using your Electrum wallet's address.

If you mean converting your BitCore(BTX) altcoin to BTC, then probably create a HitBTC[1] exchange account, send your BTX over, and sell it for BTC. That should be simple enough(assuming you have at least a bit of knowledge on how bitcoin works) for us to not create a step-by-step guide.

initial steps:
1. go to https://electrum.org/#download but verify that this is the real website and not a fake one!
2. download the appropriate version based on your OS
3. get the developer's PGP public key (learn how to verify PGP keys if needed) and get the respective signature of the file you downloaded
4. verify the signature using these 3: wallet file (.exe or .tar.gz or .dmg....) signature file (.asc) PGP public key.

recommended steps:
5. create a new Electrum wallet by selecting type of wallet you want (standard, multi sig or 2FA) which is one of the first 3 options
6. create a seed, back it up (on paper)
7. get an address from this new wallet and send your coins from your bitcoin core wallet to this address.
8. [optional] in case your bitcoin core doesn't work for any reason and you want to do step 7, after creating your wallet (step 6) from your menu select Wallet > Private keys > Sweep. then in the new window enter your private key(s) and after double checking everything click "seep" button at the bottom right corner.

alternative way (not recommended)
5. create a new Electrum wallet but instead of the first 3 options mentioned in previous step 5, you choose the last or 4th option called "Import bitcoin address or private keys" click next
6. enter your private key here (click the info button on top of this window for more information on how you should enter your key)
7. you have access to your funds and you can spend from the imported keys.

This might be your best alternative if you just want to use Electrum to manage your Bitcoin in the future without changing your address/wallet. No need to transfer any of your BTC so it should save you from fees and so on.

If you have an account log ined on your Electrum wallet, simply log in on that account and hit "Ctrl + N" button. It will direct you to create a new wallet. Choose the name of that wallet.

After that, it will direct you to this.


Just click the radio button for Import address or private keys. And import your private key. If you will try to export the private keys, you will get lots of private keys first. Just find the pair of your own address. Goodluck!

-BTC Cash (BCH)
-BTC Core (BTC) > i have funds on this one.
.....

Yes you missed something. If you will send your Bitcoin Cash on your Btc wallet you will say goodbye to it. Don't send your BCH to your BTC wallet.

Jeebus. No wonder there is so much confusion here. the bitcoin.com wallet is a bad wallet. Don't even attempt to export your bitcoin.com wallet keys. Just create a new set of keys on the Electrum wallet, and send the funds over.

Find the console in bitcoin core and use this code below.

Code:
dumpprivkey "myaddress"

Now after you get your private key you can now export it to electrum wallet just like the suggested above.

Edit: it looks like you are using mobile wallet which bitcoin.com wallet?
Anyway, you can check this method https://www.bitcoin.com/guides/how-to-import-and-export-bitcoin-private-keys

you can try following the official guide above from bitcoin.com wallet, export then import priv keys
or just do the easier way by following pooya87's guide using electrum wallet up to step 7, transfer coins
I suggest you to do it by transfer (pooya87's guide) to minimize any possible complications

Thx all for your help,

I rode all the documents and guides you just told me, I have my back up (private keys) export from Bitcoin.com wallet on my desktop.
I followed the instruction to import private keys with Electrum, here I am:
on Electrum screen, it ask me to enter a list of private keys, so I copy/past my backup from bitcoin.com wallet (text format), and electrum doesn't recognize the keys I guess? cause I can't click on the "next" button.

sorry, a bit confusing for me  Huh

never share your private keys with anyone. just check the following yourself:
1. check if your keys start with any of the following letter: '5', 'L', 'K'
2. check if each key is 51 or 52 character long
3. when you enter them in that textbox make sure you are not adding any extra characters such as ',' or '.',... each key must be entered individually and separated others with a new line (press enter between them)

if you followed the above 3 and still didn't work (for instance if your keys start with a different letter like "6" or "xprv" has a different length) then tell me that first letter only, it might be encrypted key or an extended key which requires a different approach.

I have slashs ( / ) between my different "keys".
So with that point the first symbol I have is "{" and after the first slash I have "G", after the second slash "C".... I believe its an encrypted key because I don't recognize any private key like I saw on differents tutorial or guides ... ?

i have never used bitcoin.com wallet but according to this link: https://www.bitcoin.com/guides/how-to-import-and-export-bitcoin-private-keys they don't allow you to export your keys unencrypted. which means what you have is an AES encrypted result which contains your IV, encryption type, iterations, and encrypted keys in base64 so it would look like this:

you can't import that into electrum because it doesn't have any decryption option in its GUI for these cases.

so your only (easy) option is to find your 12 word recovery phrase (seed) and use that to recover your private keys. read this topic for more information: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2644000.0
