Normally, inside Word, I get a tooltip when hovering over change tracked text to show the author and date and time or change, however, something changed on my computer and I am not sure what because now the tooltip only shows for a fleeting moment, starting to draw the box outline before being dismissed.

Any ideas how to resolve this or what might be causing the immediate dismissal?
