Why can we no longer open uploaded files by clicking on the link?

    After uploading a file and publishing in a new post, the site has recently started to link with the location where the file is stored rather than opening the file to view. For example, where a document is stored in my "documents" file in MS when the link is clicked my documents file is opened rather then the file itself. what am I doing wrong or has the form changed to upload these.

    The blog I need help with is montebelloalgorfa.wordpress.com.

    Uploading documents
    See here for accepted file types http://en.support.wordpress.com/accepted-filetypes/ The following processes are outlined particularly for users who wish to upload a document and add its download link to a blog post or page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/uploading-documents/

    Embedding documents
    If you want to embed the document itself into a post, then you will have to use a third party application like Scribd or Google Docs.
