    Hi @Janvier ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Visual Studio for Mac doesn’t include Package Manager Console. See this document: Console availability for more details.

    The Package Manager Console is built into the Package Manager for Visual Studio on Windows. Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio for Mac don’t include the console. Visual Studio for Mac has a UI for managing NuGet packages, and the equivalent console commands are available through the NuGet CLI. For more information, see Install and manage NuGet packages in Visual Studio for Mac.

    Besides, here's a similar thread: Support for Package Manager Console in Visual Studio for Mac, you can refer to this thread or follow up this thread. I would also suggest you submit a feature request ticket on our Developer Community.

    Best Regards,
