I am using PSOC Creator 3.3 with the CY8Ckit-050. I believe some setting or something has gotten changed but I cannot figure it out. The problem is: When I used to click the program button PSoC would program the device plugged into my computer without any further intervention. However, now when I click the button it brings up the "Select Debug Target" window and I have to press "Port Acquire" and then connect and finally the Ok button for programming to happen. This is a bit of a nuisance because I am cosntantly programming the device while I am developing my program.
Have I changed a setting somewhere? Honestly, I don't believe this to be the case as I have not been mucking around in any settings windows.
Thanks for any help.

Welcome in the forum.
I do not know if this cures your issue, but I would suggest you to use latest Creator version which is 4.0.
Thanks, I tried your suggestion and installed version 4.0 but the same behavior persists.
I would suggest you to get in contact with Cypress directly: At top of this page select "Design support -> Create a Support Case" and ask your question. You will be helped by a Cypress engineer.
[From support case]This is because the Debug Select is set to GPIO. When GPIO is selected debug pins like P1_0,P1_1 will act as SWD only for a certain time after the reset [this will become normal GPIO]. So to acquire the device the PSoC Creator has to send RESET signal. This is why you need to acquire all the time you try to program. If you select the Debug Select as SWD you can see the issue is resolved.
