Once you enter in your Gmail account and then open the email message from where you want download the attachment & hover your mouse over the thumb nail and hit the download button. By this way you can simply download your all attachment without any issue.

But most probably this is not exactly happening with some of the users, means they are not able to download, open and upload the attachment in Gmail. Sometime user gets a warning message regarding attachment like: “attachment allows unverified scripts” which means the message attachment is not safe to open. But apart from that if you open that attachment then might be possible there is chance of malicious software which starts running in your computer system. One more warning message is “attachments can’t be scanned fro viruses” which means, some attachments require a password to open. In this case if you find any suspicious mails then do not try to reply on that mail and simply repost it as a spam.
