How to disable telegram desktop auto media download feature

instant-messagingtelegram-messenger

Im having telegram on my windows 7 desktop machine.
I wanted to know is there a way to disable the "automatic media download" option that exists in telegram desktop? which causes the app to download all photoes and voices at the moment that the screen reaches them.
The telegram which is on android platform has an option in its settings in which you can untick photo and audio inorder to prevent it from auto downloading such media, but there is no such option in the settings of the desktop version.
Any help would be appreciated.

There is an Automatic media download settings option in my version of Telegram (0.9.18). Presumably you just want to uncheck everything.
