Test

File > New

\documentclass{article} 
\begin{document} 
Hello universe! 
\end{document}

Save to somewhere. Press F1 (Quick Build). Try F2 (Latex) etc.

Try

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
Howdy universe!
The & is a special character.
\end{document}

F2 (Latex) will tell "Process exited with errors" only. To see details, click "Next Latex Error" Button. Or, F1 (Quick Build) shows error message details too.

Configuration

Quick Build

I changed Quick Build to Latex + dvi2ps -> View PS -> Latex + View DVI.

Usually Yap (and other dvi viewers too) automatically update view by simple one clicking if the dvi file shown was updated. Use F2 (Latex) -> F3 (Dvi View), then use only F2 (Latex) would be the fastest way.

F2 (Latex) -> Alt Tab (Go to Yap) -> Alt Tab (Go to Texmaker)

But, I configured Quick Build as Latex + Dvi View, then

F1 (Quick Build) automatically shows Yap -> Alt-F4 (Close Yap) automatically goes Texmaker

This would be faster.
