As you can assume, English is not my natural language. Apologies in advance, if it is bad and poor, and please be indulgent.

comment How to make a cross symbol in LaTeX
This does not add value, since evreything of your answer is already included in Texenthusiast’s answer (one line could perhaps be added as comment: “\Cross from package marvosym works only in text mode.”).

The code producing here a line like you miss it: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \textf{XYZ} \end{document}

comment MiKTeX missing error message
I do not observe this behaviour with a recently updated MiKTeX. So the usual demand: Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

A suggestion: Do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than "user1234".

Just for your information: Bug filed in MiKTEX Bug Tracker: Map file missing for "esvect".

comment Why would esvect produce pixelated arrows?
@Werner: An installation as described in package documentation should be not necessary, because it could be installed with the package manager of MiKTeX. But in the moment there’s a bug: Upon latest update in November last year the map file was not added to installation file.

comment Garamond is the cheapest font. How to make it as default font LaTeX?
Too bad that this young guy does not know TeX. Otherwise he would perhaps have suggested Kp-Fonts in light mode, \usepackage[light]{kpfonts}.

comment Why would esvect produce pixelated arrows?
Usually updmap is called. I have successfully installed fonts with the Package manager. Much more obscure are BTW these cases where a map exists, but nonetheless no activation is done.
