Found a similar topic from 4-5 years ago. A competitor product lets me press ALT + D to share to the Web. In Snagit, I have to click 3 times to get the same result. Really slows me down. Any way to set up a hotkey for "Share to Screencast from Snagit Editor and get link in clipboard"?

This is pretty easy to setup

Launch Snagit from windows (the red icon not the blue one) and you should get the snagit capture window - it will have a big red circle with the word 'capture' on it on the right side.

Note the sections:
-left side chooses between image/video/all in one
-center section has dropdowns (note the share dropdown)
-right section has a few switches like "preview in editor"
-BOTTOM SECTION - has a 'drawer' for presets - click presets to open it.

If you like the settings you have on the top left, middle and right sections, you can click that plus button next to the word presets on the bottom section, this will save all your preferences so they can be easily used again.  Note how I have a profile called region capture, and I've assigned a hot key - Alt-shift-C
when I hit alt shift C, it does a region capture, automatically adds a 1px border and copies to the clipboard.

In your case you'd setup a profile to capture, and share, you might even decide you don't need to see the snagit editor - which would save you some time when using that shortcut.
