Attachments won't open

I cannot open attachments in my e-mail.  Attachments that are photos will open, but documents will not.  I click on the attachments and nothing happens.  If I right click, there is no "open" option.  I had to forward attachments to a separate e-mail account in order to open them.  Why won't AOL open attachments?
