How to make the confluence attachment list displaying as default?

When the user go to a page, all attachments of this page are invisible, which only an attachment number is displayed. If the user needs to dowload an attchment or view an attachment, he has to click the attachment clip icon, then all attachments will be displayed as a list on the page. So my question is how to make those attachments to display in a list on page as default?Thanks!

If you are using Confluence 5.x version, this is the latest documentation that you can refer:

Thank you all! the problem is solved!

How did you do it? Remember to mark the it as accepted as well.
