I'm working with Texmaker 4.1 and Miktex 2.9. My document consists of 4 files, 3 section tex-files and 1 main tex-file. When working in the sections it always upsets me that I have to change the view to the main file to get the document build. So my question is if there is a way to configure one of the user defined quick build options in Texmaker so that when hitting the button my main tex-file is build and not the one which is shown.

Yes. Open your main file and use the Options menu to Define Current Document as 'Master Document'. See below.
