Show uploaded file right after upload

I'd like to know if it's possible to show or click the file right after it's uploaded using the "file upload" question time.

For example, one can choose to upload a document, then he can click the link to download the file again on his computer, or he can view a preview of the file on the question type.

Thanks for your help!

I don't see why someone would want to download a file to the same machine that they just uploaded from?

Because he can "save for later" his survey, or he can check for accuracy if his documents are ok.

For example, one can access the survey in another machine then downoad his documents.

If I get it right, the questiontype fileupload is the only question type which cannot be changed.
The usecase for a survey: You upload a file, continue the survey. If you can go back, you might want to check if you have uploaded the correct file (E.g. same filename, different folders on your device). Being able to download and remove files is a valid case.

No, you can go back and check/edit/remove the file.

This what is seen after uploading and on returning to the page.

Let's consider some kind of files, for example PDF Documents. One can check the filename, delete or change the file, but he cannot download this file.

Only the survey's admin can download the uploaded document in admin area. How to allow users to download the uploaded files?

There is currently no way. You can submit a feature request.
