Telegram for Desktop less than perfect

In x32Win10ProV22H2, Telegram for Desktop is a wonderful communication application that I would not swap for another; however there are two irritations which I would like to be removed. It involves disabling the tools for Attachments and for Emojs. These tools are at the left and right ends of the text-entry bar. The reason I want them disabled is not just because I personally have no use for them, but because I am constantly activating them inadvertently, and then having to close the unwanted opened windows. The publishers, who update the app EXTREMELY frequently, should be the ones to give me the advice I need, but they are unresponsive to any kind of user input, so I appeal to help-forums instead.

I don't remember when was the last time I used anything 32 bit but on my 64 bit Windows, starting with 1803 (almost 6 years old build), Telegram has never caused any button-related issues. Attachments button only creates additional windows if I click on it and emojis button is super easy to avoid.

I guess it's a trolling thread rather than anything else. This issue seems as made up as it gets.

The only people that can help you with this are the devs, and I'm quite sure they have good reasons* for doing it the way they do.

*You might not think they are good reasons,

Thanks for your thankless task of responding.
As for trolling - it's my own inconvenience that I want to alleviate, not stir up others.

Beginner Micro Device - I've tried in x64 - the same problem.

With help from forums I have discovered that I do not need to bring the mouse near either the Attachment or Emoji tools; clicking ANYWHERE (else) in Telegram enables text entry, and sending can be done by a keystroke. So I do not need to disable those two tools for Attachments and Emojis.

I was given an effective URL and did get a response from the developers. However, they question the need for the mouse cursor in the text box - at first I agreed with them, but then discovered that I need the cursor in the text box to correct mistakes I made while typing.
