You can solve 'Target class [App\Http\Controllers\Request] does not exist' issue in laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8, laravel 9 and laravel 10 versions.

A few days ago I was working on my laravel app and I want to get all query string data using Request. When I run the project then I found 'Target class [App\Http\Controllers\Request] does not exist' error. you can see bellow screenshot as well.


After some research, I found that If you are using the "Request" in Controller, Middleware, or blade file then you must have used facade on top.

so let's see bellow solution and example code here:


You must need to add "use Illuminate\Http\Request;" on top of controller, middleware, command, event or blade files. Let's see bellow:

use Illuminate\Http\Request;


You can see controller file code, how to use it.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class UserController extends Controller



* Display a listing of the resource.


* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response


public function index(Request $request)


$input = $request->all();

return view('users');



I hope it can help you...
