HttpContext does not exist in System.Web

I created a new project with the template "Console App (.NET Core)". So when I try manually referencing System.Web through "Add reference", there will be no reference tab.

Can anyone help how to add reference of HttpContext?

    The System.Web based HttpContext is a class in .NET Framework (versions 1-4) and not available in either .NET Core (Version 1-3) or .NET (version 5 or 6).

    In a console application the current HttpContext will always be null. If you are creating a .NET Core web application, you can read the documentation in the following link to access current HttpContext.

    May be if you provide more details about what you are trying to achieve by using HttpContext in a console application, you will get a better answer.
