Word is refreshing the reviewing pane

I receive this information at the bottom of a Word document each time I open a Word file with changes and comments incorporated. This is what my job is about! I'm an editor. It's extremely annoying that it takes a dozen seconds (often more) to properly open a file.
Big Sur 11.5.2
Word 16.52 (21080801).
I don't know if I can do anything about it, but please, do something about it during the next update.
For now, any help would be more than welcome.
Thanks,
UrSz

    Please go to Review tab > Tracking > Markup Options > Preferences, check the options for displaying tracked changes. I suggest you take a screenshot like the image below. Some settings will force the reviewing pane opening.

    Besides, I would suggest you click Review tab > Tracking > Choose Simple Markup > Click Markup Options, tick Comments and Insertions and Deletions, then please open a document to have a check, whether the reviewing pane still show up.
