What happens when the file link is clicked depends on settings in the Appearance section as well as how the browser is set up to handle links. File types may be handled differently.

For large files you may need to wait for the file to upload. When the upload is complete, the File picker window will close. For files dragged into the field, wait for the file name to appear in blue text.
